Configure new HDDs on ML310e Gen8

Hello, I have a ML310e Gen8 Server and I want to change it's HDDs.

The server is using RAID 1 but curruntly only has one Drive.

I've seen that I need to access the Smart Array Controler "F5", for the system to be able to recognize the new HDDs. 

I am unable to acces the Smart Array Controler as the issue is exactly the same presented in this Discussion: https://community.hpe.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-ML-DL-SL/Cannot-access-Smart-Array-Controller-during-boot-up/td-p/7068405#.XiCT3NT7S1s

 

From my understanding I have to reset the NAND, by accessing the ILO Web interface, but i'm also unable to access it with the IP that apears in POST.

Note that I was able to update the BIOS and the ILO 4 to it's most recent updates.

 

Any sugestion of what I should do?
