Lord have mercy I am a sinner.

Now imagine those IT monkeys trying to uninstall and reinstall and change settings NETWORK or BIOS or whatever... when in the end it's the  :wtf: cable.

Kudos to Berni to smell the BS and nail down the problem.

I wish I had a little X-Ray machine in my lab....

I did end up reinstalling unRaid once and updating my BIOS, but it made no difference so i started digging deeper.

Regarding sata cables, not sure at your country locally, here at local online market place listing, I always bought sata cables from those kind of shops that usually sell used office IT equipment like used servers, used corporate network stuffs and etc. They usually carry these excess unused quality cables and sell them very cheap, at least here.

Remembered this thread, just bought bunch of these, server grade NOS SAS cables, really cheap, only about $1 a piece.  :P

Sounds like you need to sacrifice one for science!
