HP ML150 Gen9 SSD on sata port on Motherboard

Hi,

I have a new HP ML150 Gen9 Tower, with dual 1TB SATA connected to the b140 storage controller. Using them in raid 0. Windows 2016 installed and everything runs perfect.

Now i decided to connect a loose SSD harddrive to a free sata connecter on the motherboard. The problem is that windows does not recognize the disk at all. Not te be found in device manager or anywhere else.

If i temporarily switch the bios from UEFI to Legacy i can see the drive in de boot options screen. So the drive seems te be properly recognized by the server. I also tested the ssd in a client pc and it works properly.

Can anyone give me advise in this matter?

Thx!

Dave

Hi,

I already have the latest drivers for the b140 controller.

But as i said, i have the ssd connected to the mainboard, not to the b140 controller.
It's weird because the optical drive is found in Windows, and the secondary sata where i connected my SSD is not found.

Hello , 

The SATA connectors can be used for Optical drive,SATA 9.5mm DVD-ROM or DVD RW Optical Drive, Tape Drive, or LFF.

Please refer Quick Specs

If you want to use SATA hard drive using the SATA port (on motherboard) without using the onboard controller/PCI Storage controller  ,an optional part is required to be installed in the media Bay .Refer Qucikspecs to locate media Bay .
