Quote:I wouldn't do UEFI unless you read up on it more. You have plenty of motherboards to try it on. And all these guides and directions are for DOS
So then I should use UEFI as my first choice? Or default to it if it fails the other first ?

So I disable all the boot devices in bios ? Like optical, HDD, LAN and USB ???
Quote:LSI9211-IT = Straight pass through no RAID, best for ZFS file system etc
What is the difference between IR mode and IT mode ?
LSI9211-IR = Pass through as in IT mode, but you also have RAID options (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1e and RAID 10), better for RAID 0 Windows boot SSDs etc, and possibly run Software RAID 5 on the other drives.
LSI9240 = default mode, only really useful feature this mode has is RAID1/ RAID 10, drives have to be set to JBOD (single) or RAID to be seen by OS, can be annoying when adding removing drives often.
