 +====== HP P421i ======
 +The P421i is a fairly simple SAS RAID controller. I picked mine up at the end of 11-2019 as part of a set of servers. I've found its option ROM does not like my z420, it may have issues with other systems but I haven't tested them. On the z420 the solution was to disable downloading the option ROM for the slot that the card is installed in.
  
 +In linux, the card can be managed. Here's how.
