  1. I got the same initial error on a PERC H730:
    Avago EFI SAS Driver:
    Unhealthy status reported by this UEFI driver…
    UEFI0116: One or more boot drivers have reported issue(s)…
    I performed all the same steps except the NVRAM clear and my issue resolved. Might have just been the card needing to be reseated. I was surprised to see that the card isn’t firmly seated and if the fan shroud wasn’t holding it down it would most certainly fall out.

    This is in a new PE T630.

    Thanks for the article. It helped.

    I still have a replacement controller on warranty replacement but this fix managed to get us through the day.

  2. Thank You man, I have the same problem with my Power Edge R230 from 2 weeks and now with your tutorial I resolve my problem, thank you for all.

    Nick.

  3. Have encountered this issue also on a R430 with PERC H330 Mini and solved it with your procedure except the PERC card is not at the same spot.
