  1. Does RUFUS not do this? The drive should be bootable already since it launches the EFI shell, right? And I don't think it should need to be named UNRAID, since this is my FreeDOS boot drive. My UnRAID one works just fine.
  2. I've been trying. Unfortunately it's not really pulling up anything useful. I'm pretty sure that my H310 used to be flashed with IT Mode and I think it somehow got messed up during the upgrade. It now shows up on my motherboard as an H310 device. It should do that if it's flashed with the P20 firmware, correct?
  3. I attempted downgrading and that hasn't fixed the issue. If anyone knows why I'm getting an EFI shell instead of FreeDOS, the help would be appreciated.
  4. I attempted to folIow the techmattr guide. The link to creating a bootable USB is no longer there, so I simple downloaded Rufus, ticked the "Download FreeDos option" and click "start". I think copied over the files from the guide. However, Ikeep getting an EFI shell instead of an actual DOS prompt. Does anyone have any idea why that might be the case?
  5. I just realized you accidentally did the Techmattr thread twice instead of the reddit thread! Would you mind posting that one?
  6. I managed to get it to post and now the 8TB drives show up! I'm going to try updating the H310 and see if the drives will show up using that again.
  7. Good call! My backpane uses a molex connection, so I forgot my 12TB drives have the 3.3v issue. My 8TB drives also don't have the 3.3v issue however and I can use them to test. Right now I can't get my system to post at all though. I see the splash screen for a second, but it doesn't enter BIOS anymore. I regret upgrading so much.
  8. Maybe the word "corrupted" would have been better. Do you have any suggestions? This is the case I have. Originally after the update my second data drive stopped working, so I removed it from the hot-swap bay and troubleshooted it. Eventually I decided to see if the part was dead, so I shuffled around the drives. This caused one of my parity drives to go offline as well. I now suspected that perhaps the backplane inside the case was faulty, so I removed four of the drives from the hotswap bays and connected them directly to the breakout cables from my Dell H310. Now even less drives were showi
  9. Thank you, I will look at these in the future. Unfortunately, the drives aren't showing up in Bios when directly plugged into the system. I fear that the combination of the upgrade/troubleshooting may have somehow killed all my drives. I seriously hope that is not the case.
  10. Unfortunately I upgraded my board/cpu recently, and I can not for the life of me figure out where the drive information is located. I'll probably research that in a bit.
  11. I thought that might be the issue, but that wouldn't affect the drives when plugged directly into the mothrboard, correct? I powered down the system, removed all the drives from the expansion card, and plugged four directly into the motherboard. Those drives did not show up.
  12. I honestly have no idea what's going on. It started with one drive not working after the upgrade. Then I started troubleshooting (Powering off, reseating drives, unplugging and replugging in all cables, plugging in to mobo directly instead of expansion card, etc) and now only one of my eight drives shows up. Can someone please help? I have no idea why this is happening.
  13. Sorry, I was just clarifying because you suggested rebuilding both at the same time. My plan is to do the following: Plug in Parity Disk 1, let it be rebuilt as Data Disk 1. After it's done rebuilding, compare it to the original Data Disk 1, and if it looks good, use my original Data Disk 1 as Parity Disk 1. This makes more sense than rebuilding both at the same time, correct?
