CentOS 6.9, the operating system you're installing, has no knowledge of the Logical RAID Volume you created - during the pre-installation phase - using the HPE SSA or HPE Intelligent Provisioning method against the Smart Array Controller your HPE ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server has (is it the HPE Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller? ...you didn't specified the Smart Array Controller model your Server is equipped with and it is currently using to manage its disks)...thus you need to inject the correct Smart Array Controller's driver during CentOS 6.9 installation phase.

Assuming your Server is using the HPE Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller (which is the default Entry level SATA RAID Controller) then you need to arrange your CentOS 6.9 installation by injecting the latest proper hpdsa storage controller driver (HP Dynamic Smart Array B140i SATA RAID Controller Driver) found here (note: it is valid for RedHat Linux Enterprise Server for which there is a binary compatibility with CentOS...at least if you consider same versions of both operating systems, like RHEL 6.9 versus CentOS 6.9).

Instructions on how to install Device Drivers on Linux (RedHat Enterprise Linux 6) can be found on page 9 of HPE Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller User Guide here.
