I have successfully upgraded Dell PERC H310 Raid Controller with H710 without losing any data. The process was very simple, pretty much plug and play. Before the upgrade I tried to consult with the Dell techs, but they had no idea about the process and its outcome since apparently no one ever had a need to do it, but me. Well, i guess I am a pioneer now 🙂
To assure everyone it really works, I took a video, watch bellow.
Any questions feel free to ask.
1. Remove the old PERC H310 card
2. Insert new PERC H710 (make sure to plug in the SAS connectors)
3. Watch the video.
