Your issue is an easy fix. I went through some questions here on ServerFault and the HP guides here but they weren’t of much help to a n00b like me. Right now, the RAID controller sees that it has raw disks, but no volumes have been created, so there is nothing to present to the OS or installer, rather ; you just need to initialize a volume. Thanks a lot for the response and the detailed explanation. Change the configuration to what’s described in the diagram above, and you’ll be able to use the onboard HP controller. If you do have a card installed and there’s a pin SCSI cable connecting it to the backplane, remove the cable s and change to the above configuration. The key to this are the drive backplane and the motherboard connections.

Right now, the RAID controller sees that it has raw disks, prolaint no volumes have been created, so there is nothing to present to the OS or installer, rather ; you just need to initialize a volume. Thanks for your reply. HP controllers never present RAW disks. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to do so.

The jumper cable 2 is key. You mean, software RAID? Thanks a lot, Mr.

Also, directly installing the OS MS Server Standard Edition obviously doesn’t work shows no hard disk found Could anyone please advise as to what other needs to be done to format my server?

You probably just have an Adaptec controller in the PCI slot with the drive backplane cabled to it.

This assumes you don’t have proljant PCI-X cards in the riser cage. I changed it according to the diagram you gave and Voila! The drives in this setup are not even connected to the onboard Smart Array 6i controller. Post as a guest Name. Change the configuration to what’s described in the diagram above, and you’ll be able to use the onboard HP controller. Thanks a lot for the response and the detailed explanation.

I’ll try to follow these steps and check the status and let you know of the outcome. The key to this are the drive backplane and the motherboard connections.
