Boot the system and press F9 during POST. under systyem configuration - SATA controlelr settings,  disable B140i Mode and set it to AHCI.  Save the settings and reboot. Boot from your Ubuntu media and install the OS.

Thank you for the reply Jimmy.

I have H240 Smart Array HBA installed. Do i need to follow same steps as you mentioned for this one also?

Should i configure RAID before OS installation or after installtion?

No, the H240 uses the the hpsa driver which is in the Linux kernel. The B140i uses a special driver not available for Ubuntu.  Configure your RAID on the H240 and boot the installer.
