Great. I'll have reason to do some linuxbios hacking soon. I purchased some GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 setups to build a Multi-TB RAID server. Parts should arrive next week. One goes into service with stock BIOS to get going ASAP and the other gets LB.
Ultimate plan is a LB based NAS with the only rotating media being the SATA drives. Ward tells me there's still a bit 'o hacking to be done to all the get all the SATA slots up. If I can I'd also like to upgrade the SPI flash part to as big as the chipset will support and if thats still not big enough to hold my kernel+rootfs then change to a USB nand drive.
For SPI flash size, the limitation is not how much the chipset can support, but how much the SPI translation feature in the IT8716F can support.
