..... but i believe that this firmware 3.90a7 ist no bootable firmware.
I´ve an old adapter with 3.82a1 and there is no problem to boot from SAN.
With this one it is a problem.

On the IBM Webpage there is no possibility to download the driver
( from
http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/server/mdownload/download.html#adapter)

There is only the old one available.

Are there any ideas where i can get the new one?
Information about the new driver ist on the page available.

  Regards Peter
