I need some help. I both your 8K7A+ motherboard so I could use it to run
an inexpensive raid system for my SuSE 7.3 Pro Linux system. As you can
see from the email from High Point below they say I must get my bios
upgrade from you, however according to the High Point web site the
version of the bios I need to run my SuSE 7.3 Pro in a raid
configuration is 2.2.
So I was wondering if the verison number listed with the latest bios for
the HPT370a is the same as those used by High Point? If not are you
going to release another update in the future that will provide a 2.2
Thanks for your help in this matter.
We only provide BIOS updates for PCI cards.
The EPoX motherboard BIOS update also updates the controller's BIOS (it
cannot be updated separately).
