Lenovo driverpage for SAS HBA for TS440 ( has EFI sheel / tools):

This is the EFI shell that worked for my TS440 (Precompiled x86_64 UEFI Shell v1 binary ):

This is the P20 driver download location I used for FreeNAS

search for SAS 9211-8i Host Bus Adapter for firmware:

OR

download directly FreeBSD driver P20 download file:

Remember:

The TS140 it’s looking for a specific path and filename. Copy the x86 binary to ‘\efi\boot\bootx64.efi.’ need to rename it to ‘bootx64.efi’ that is what ts140 is looking for and only in that specific directory.
