Question about Dell PowerEdge 840 (becwmk1_2) Server
My DELL POWEREDGE 850 is a 64 Bit System. I have Win 7 64 Pro O.S. installed on SATA with 'no apparent errors'. But sadly, my new TOSHIBA 2TB SAS MG03SCA200 SCSI remains unidentified no matter what I try? I have a: SATA 7Pin to SAS 7+15Pin Data Power Cable Adapter that should do the trick? See eBay: 262059703135. Now my SAS spins up, but EASEUS Partition Master and Windows HD Partition never 'see' the SAS at all? I tried to locate 'drivers' or a 'installer' that may wake the SAS, but it remains unseen and unable to access? I tried the SAS Drive and Adapter on a HP 64-Bit System with the same results ~ no-go. ANY help will be greatly appreciated!
Using a DELL 13 year old server... 850 model.
REDUX #3, (im almost up to speed on YOUR GOAL)
you bought the wrong server, sure been there done that.
and discover to your chagrin that the SATA port
is useless for SAS new drives.
well it is. sorry.
not only that those 2 ports are slow, Intel ACH7 chips are Slow.
but so is that old Pentium inside.
omg some with CELERY chip dogs
i see that call SAS SCSI back 13 years ago
ok that cute, historically.
the CTO order new server had 10 choice on
just the controller (drive) with cables for data
power , backplane and cage, all missing in yours.
there is only 2 cures.
1: buy the dell parts missing in your server.
card + cable + sas cage (and matching backplane)
I bet only uses ones exist now,ask DELL that.
2: buy a cheap raid card, and flash it to HBA mode.
now some images
sometimes the limit, is firmware, or the driver
or simply , Dell didnt have 2+TB hDD to test back in 2005.!
reality of that fact.

Testimonial: "Larry, my control card is just like the card you posted. The board numbers match mine too. There are "SATA 0" (blue) and "SATA 1" (black) ports, but no mention of SAS. The large IDE (blue) connector is present too. The System BIOS was Version A03 and I just found A04 Bios online and it installed fine. Wow, July 2012. Larry, my Dell has a riser card with 2 PCI-E connectors, the largest is white with many pins and the smallest is black. This card also supports the front PANEL connectors (USB+COM), LEDs and power button, etc. Larry, you mentioned, "a new SATA card for 10 bucks, that works."? Will this new board support SAS drives larger than 600GB? Can you please tell me the board name or maybe it's number? Thank you, Larry. Your efforts ARE greatly appreciated! Anthony"
Sounds like, if it has never worked, your motherboard is too outdated.

Testimonial: "Thank you, Jon! The 'new' 1TB SATA drive I installed was recognized instantly on setup. I preformatted that 1TB SATA with NTFS on a HP system. Win 7 64 Pro installed quickly. It's my NEW SAS (SCSI) that can not be recognized with the original Dell SATA Card. Jon, all I need is a "simple" SAS SCSI Drive Controller. ONE port will do, but TWO would be much better! My big problem is I don't know WHICH card to buy? The SAS Drive has a data connector that LOOKS just like a small SATA data connector, but it's not SATA. Thank you for your reply, Jon!"
