My ML350 don't see IDE Hard Disks

Hi,
I need connect to ProLiant IDE Hard Disks (2x 80GB). When I connect disks to Secondary IDE system detect nothing. When I connect disks to Primary IDE system detect 2 disk, but as 15GB each.
What I have to do to Server detect disks correctly.
There are Array Raid Controller (4 SCSI Disks in Raid 5) and IDE CD-Rom.

Use Promise (hp is using it in storage server ML110) controller as suppose KOV. Connecting other (hdd) devices to integrated IDE controller is not supported (in all cpq/hp proliant scsi models)

Hi,

In addition to above replies, I want to tell you that if you want to use a PCI IDE card for connecting IDE HDD for booting purpose, AFAIK, it is not possible to boot this server through IDE drive.

Thank's for all. I got answer from Technical Support of HP. They told me that HP (Compaq)on purpose to block IDE Controller on servers mainboard. CD and DVD-ROM can only connect there. The reason is to guard HP against use IDE Recorder to cheap backup.
