    Serial SCSI (SAS)

    Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) has been around for a few years, but there hasn't been much news about them. There aren't that many consumer products out for it either.

    Not detecting SSD on SATA port (Marvell 9128)

    G'day all. I've solved this somewhat, but thought I'd bring it up here and see what comes of it. Been using FreeBSD for years on my home server, now wanted to test it out on my desktop machine. Attempted to install 10.3-STABLE and 11-CURRENT but neither detected my Samsung 850 EVO SSD. Doesn't...
