How to configure an HBA to be recognised by a ZimaBoard

Here are the instructions to enable the use of an HBA to work with the ZimaBoard.

Once in the bios go to:
south cluster configuration
pci express configuration
-enable all
pci express clock gating
port 8xh decode
port #0
peer write memory
compliance mode

Then go to:
pci express root port 3
aspm: auto
pcie speed: gen 2
transmit half swing: enable
(if it still doesn’t work I would then try ports 4, 5 and 6 but I got it to work just by changing port 3)

Hope this Helps
