Up until now it wasn't possible to use the Dell Perc H310 Mini Mono cards with FreeNAS because it just seemed not to be possible to flash them to IT mode or if you did that, your Dell server wouldn't boot up because it didn't found the proper Mini Mono card.

Now someone seems to have found a way to solve this problem so that maybe this not so rare Dell card seems to be working with FreeNAS now.

Please share you experiences with that topic. Thank you :)

The process is not a simple one. You should ask the creator of the video to see if they can share some additional details.

I've just bricked my Perc H310 Mini on my Dell R320.

Now, I've watched "The Art of Server" video on how to unbrick the card and he does it by flashing directly the EEPROM with an 8KB file, either for the IT mode or for the genuine dell mode.
I can't seem to find any of these dumps in the archive following that link: https://phoxden.net/H310MM_IT.pdf
The only files we can find are 723KB, 2118it.bin and 2118ir.bin.

Any idea where we can locate the 8KB dump, either IT mode or Dell standard as I want to unbrick the card?

I have the EEPROM programmer already so ready to go. Just missing the EEPROM dump.

Thanks!
