Proliant ML150 G6 - Bios Update

Hello there!

  We have one Proliant ML150 G6 wich was configured on the P410 with  RAID 10,  4 disks , 2 TB each , Im trying to install the Windows Server 2012 R2  but doesn't are allocating all disks, obsviosly I tried to change partiton to GPT, but not are working, when start the Os that show just 2 TB to use. I can't update the bios because we are out of warranty. Should someone give me some solution ( the firmaware update) ? I supose I need to update the Bios, that way I can boot in UEFI mode, should solve the problem.

G6 BIOS update does not change the system into a UEFI capable system.  Gen9 are the first ProLiant to offer UEFI

Thank you Jimmy!  Do you know how should I fix this? How make the OS recognize all disks?

Hello

I found another forum, it might help you.

On The HP array manager it's called slightly different.

From 5:40 Creating an array - use all drives 

From 5:50 - Creating Logical Drive - at this point you create 2 logical drives - with the option SIZE you click Other and will let you chose the size of Logical drive one smaller that you would use as MBR for the System installation then you will be left with UNUSED  space - from that create a 2nd Logical drive and this can be changed to GPT for partitions bigger than 2 TB.

Good luck
