LSI cards often have a R and a T firmware, one for raid and one for HBA,
you might want to put the hba firmware on the card and present the drives
native. Unfortunately I cant find much about the PROMISE 2U-SAS-12-D2 BP
0107, LSI card but it will be worth inspecting the actual board as it may
give more clues.
