I understand that you, Ivan, managed to install FreeBSD on an IBM Series x 3650 M3 server with the LSI M1015 SAS/SATA RAID controller.

Ivan, did you tweak something to install, or did it work "out of the box" for you?
Which FreeBSD version did you install?

My main objective is to install the appliance distro SpanTitan 5.04 from It's based on FreeBSD 7.3  and the manufacturer confirms that the mfi(4) driver is compiled into the kernel.

I've also tried with another (vanilla) version of FreeBSD (8.1), but with no luck. It just says there's no disk drives found.
