A few months ago, I had to flash the firmware on a LSI 2008 aka 9211-8i 
because I needed the card in "IT" (Initiator Target) mode rather than 
"IR" (Integrated Raid), and this requires different firmware AND card 
bios.    This was surprisingly difficult to accomplish as the system had 
a UEFI BIOS, and on that the LSI logic firmware flasher wouldn't operate 
in MSDOS, I had to discover and utilize this bizarro-world known as the 
UEFI Shell to run the firmware flash utility.
