I successfully upgraded with 1078 firmware my STLAB A-520 card by MARVELL 9230 chipset.
But be attention, that this image.A1 with 1078 firmware is a dump from another card , and it has inside it's own MDU parameters and after that you need to restore your mdu parameters from the backup (from your file with MDU parameters ) even if you made go.bat -e -y and go.bat -y command. Because image already contain some MDU parameters from another card.

We can use go.bat -e -y go.bat -y or go.bat -w -y go.bat -y doesn't metter.
After the procedure you have to restore MDU your parameters from your Backup mdu file by MDU_MAG utility.

If we usually restore clean IMAGE.A1 from the original installation setup (not like dump from the unknown card) we can use go.bat -e -y go.bat -y command to save your own MDU configuration and in that case we don't need to restore it.

MDU parameters need to change some settings, for example it usefull for add HYPERDUO HYBRID mode.

Example how to restore mdu parameters with MDU utility:

"mdu_mag restore_cfg -f 9200.txt", where 9200.txt is your text file with your MDU_PARAMETERS, see MDU utility and HowTo.txt for more info.

can you provide right MDU parameters (9200.txt file) for STLAB A-520 with 1078 firmware?


and second question for all (on exist 1065 firmware).

I try create RAID0 on two mSATA SSD.
- RAID0 created
- if use 32K Stripe block - not want format
- if use 64K Stripe block - format complete, but if any files copy - hang :(

Here is an update for those still using Marvell 9230 controller.

I have uploaded a new zip archive with both A0 and A1 firmware.

Please not that UEFI versions are now available and that after flashing them the Marvell setup utility will NOT be available on boot and is not a part of the firmware!

You must copy the content of the '9230_tools' folder (included in the archive) to a bootable USB device and boot into a UEFI shell.

Running 'go.nsh' which will load the Marvell UEFI Utility 'uefi64.efi' from the bin folder, which shold present you with this;

Will this work with ASUS X79-DELUXE 88SE9230 chip A0 ?

Hi cubeover, yes it should, please backup your current firmware before you attempt to update so that you can revert if you experience any issues.

According to the ASUS X79-DELUXE manual the Marvell controller should support HyperDuo and RAID.

Yes indeed - thank you chinobino, you are best!
FYI ASUS BIOS has an Option to "Check and update Marvell firmware" - DO NOT ENABLE this, it will simply re-flash with older firmware that shipped inside the ASUS BIOS, not really upgrade but downgrade to 1.0.0.1011 in this case. When disabled, it keeps whatever you flash.
I guess if that mucks up your controller, main BIOS can easily "rescue".
I had to flash twice. Also in your GO.BAT I had to edit first %RawFileName% to IMAGEA0 since it was A1 which does not fit me.
