ProLiant ML350 G4P not seeing disc drives during Server 2008 Installation

The server sees all 6 drives in the BIOS.  The BIOS is only allowing me to create 2 arrays using a total of 4 disk drives.  However, after creating an array and verifying it is set up, the windows installer says no disks detected.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.  Especially if you can assist with the BIOS issue as well.

 

FYI, I ran the SmartCD 8.5 with no luck and tried deleting the NVRAM to reset all the settings to default but that did not work either.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: ProLiant ML350 G4P not seeing disc drives during Server 2008 Installation

I was able to resolve this item by using a SmartStart CD (8.5) for the OS installation and by disabling the RAID in the BIOS for the Windows installation to see the drives.

 

Hope this helps someone out.
