Hi! Well, just had a little time to test a 1750 with 4.9-prerelease. it works, dmesg attached below. The Controller is a LSI based one, and looks like this: amr0: <LSILogic MegaRAID> mem 0xfcb00000-0xfcb3ffff,0xf0000000-0xf7ffffff irq 5 at device 3.0 on pci4 amr0: <LSILogic PERC 4/Di> Firmware 4.04, BIOS B109, 128MB RAM amrd0: <LSILogic MegaRAID logical drive> on amr0 amrd0: 69116MB (141549568 sectors) RAID 5 (optimal) pass0 at amr0 bus 0 target 6 lun 0 Mounting root from ufs:/dev/amrd0s1a You will need at least 4.9-pre, because the bge's are quite new, 4.8-R will not find them.
