I would upgrade the firmware on server, controller and drives. Then, upgrade the drivers.

Re: POST Error: 1785-Drive Array not Configured

The error is informational. It simply means the controller is detecting some drives not configured as part of the array.. Or there is no RAID configured..

To troubleshoot this, simply access the Array Configuration Utility.. Check how many drives you have and make sure they are all configured in a RAID..
If it's not fun, you're not doing it right

Hello
referring to the first solution. I'm downloading the newest of which is the site of hp power upgrade.

The second solution, I opened the Array Configuration Utility and checked my arrays.

I have the array A where I have two disks in RAID1 where you installed the operating system, the array B have four drives in RAID5 where to place the data from users.

Re: POST Error: 1785-Drive Array not Configured

As gary write

This error message occour, when a smart array controller find no configuration on the drives.
You will allways get it on the very first boot.
Or if you have a unused array controller in the system, then you will get it on all boots.

Here's some good reading on the Smart Array.

I do recommend, you to mark the entries as repaired in the IML (Integrated Management log)
>Start>all programs>HP system tools>IML Viewer.
Mark all entries repaired.
Do not clear the log (It's your HW insident history)
