Dell Perc 6/i Restore BIOS/Bricked Solution Guide Howto

I bricked one of my cards by following a guide from UNRAID.

Step #1 from them wipes out the BIOS, but guess what?  The step where you restore the BIOS should have been done first, which is sas2flash but no version supports or is able to find my Perc 6/i.  So now I'm a bit stuck.

I tried using megarec but it's funny that it can wipe the BIOS but can't forcefully reload it:

megarec -writesbr 0 mpt2sas.rom

Supports 1078 controller and its successors

orderPciChips(): WARNING! Implementation error! Host Bridge is not 0/0/0

orderPciChips(): WARNING! Vid: 10DE Did: 0369 Cl: 50000

No MR Controller(s) found 1078

If controller(s) physically present but not found.

Please shutdown the system and set the jumper in default position and power up.
