DL380 G5 with Smart Array P400 - Drive Failures on building RAID

Hi -

I have a DL380 G5 server with a PCI-E P400 Smart Array Controller. Firmware on the server is P56 and the controller firmware is 7.08.

Whenever I try to build a RAID array in the Smart Start Array Configuration tool - or the Embedded BIOS tool - the drives all fail one after the other during the "Saving Configuration".

These are brand new drives.

They are all 146 GB 6G Dual Port SAS drives.

MODEL: EG0146FAWHU
HP PN: 507119-003

I don't have another RAID controller to swap out and try with. Any ideas?
