LSI 9201-8i not recognized on Asrock Z370 Extreme4

I purchased an LSI 9201-8i from Ebay (Seller has pre-flashed to IT Mode)




The card is not recognized when inserted.  I do not see the cards Bios screen on boot.  The cards heartbeat light does not flash nor the activity lights. 

However there is a single small green LED that does light up when the card is inserted.  Which I believe is the one circled in the pic below.




Troubleshooting I have tried:


  • Tested all PCIE slots with GPU (All work)
  • Tried in all 3 PCIE slots
  • Updated to the latest version of the MB Bios (4.10) - http://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/Z370 Extreme4/index.asp#BIOS
  • BIOS -> Boot -> CSM (Compatibility Support Module) -> Launch Storage OpROM Policy - I have tried changing this from "Legacy" to "UEFI only"
  • BIOS -> Chipset Configuration -> PCIE Link Speed - Options "Auto", Gen 1, Gen 2 & Gen 3.  - Have tried Auto & Gen 2


I have not tested this in another PC yet as I don;t have a spare, however I could probably find someone to test it for me if needed.


Is this card not compatible with the Asrock Z370 Extreme4 MB or perhaps the card is dead?  Any help/suggestions appreciated?

If can't found in "tools" -> "System devices", almost confirm.

If you bought it from the art of the server person he does not sell fakes or junk.

If you have another system try it and see if it pops up. If not contact the seller.
