    Hi guys,

    I have just received my Areca 1213-8i raid card and installed it in my Mac Pro 5,1. But I was confused after read the installation manual because I want to make it bootable in Mac OS. I realized that I should flash the EFI BOIS but I can't find the EFI BIOS download link in Areca website. There is just Firmware version 1.51 for download. Is it the right firmware I should download?

    Thanks all!

    You can find it in two places;
    1. Disk that came with the card.
    2. Via Areca's FTP site (where you'd go to get the latest).

    Here's the link to the FTP site for the EFI Firmware for your specific model.
