The firmware my card came with didn't have a JBOD mode, which is why I
flashed the newer firmware. Then I could boot in JBOD mode from a rescue
CD and see some drives, though not those that had had RAID-mode metadata
written to them, but I couldn't boot the system with GRUB (from drives
on another controller).

Cheers,

John.
