    Hello,

    Any one bought one of these recently? I just got one this weekend. I flashed it using the latest firmware from highpoint site using a windows machine through the webui. Once I got home and installed it on my 2009 mac pro it does not seem to work. I see the device under pci cards but it does not have a driver for it. Also I do not see my connected drives.

    If I try to boot with FreeDos, Ultimate Boot Disc. All I get is the HighPoint boot screen.

    Any help welcomed. Thanks!
