Server Proliant ML110 G2 don't accept SATA Hard Disk

Hi,

I need to install a SATA Hard Disk on Proliant ML110 G2. The server has the conector, but in BIOS i can't access and change the SATA options, it's in gray color.

I tryed download the SATA Controller and install it on Windows Instalation, but doesn't work.

Does anybody knows how to change the sata options for BIOS recognize my Hard Disk?

Thanks!

Hi!

What kind of storage controller do you have in this server. Most of the times this server is shipped with a HP Single Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (used with SCSI Models only) or Integrated 4 ports Serial ATA (used with non hot-plug SATA drive Models) Support for RAID 0, 1.

Go to phoenixBIOS setup by pressing F10 during POST, then go to Advanced/ Advanced chipset control and check if the Serial ATA is enable, it should be enable. After that you should be able to access the Array Configuration During POST. Go to the array and check if the hard drives are recognized.
If it's not fun, you're not doing it right

Hi,

The server has an external SCSI Controller, but the SCSI Hard Disk isn't working, so we decided to change it for a SATA Hard Disk.

To enter Bios Setup i press F2 during POST. Advanced Chipset Options has only options for VGA/LAN/USB onboard and ECC and SERR options.

The options for SATA is on ADVANCED root...

It's hard do explain... i'll try but tomorrow i'll bring my cam and will take a photo of the screen to show it.

The BIOS let me change only the options for PARALLEL ATA (options are: disabled, CHANNEL 0, CHANNEL 1 and BOTH).

Below options for PARALELL ATA is the option for SERIAL ATA that is disabled and i can't reach it on options to change for ENABLED.

What i have to do to enable the SATA option?

I'm sending the screen of the SATA options on BIOS.

The SATA options are inaccessible (in gray).

I just can change options of Parallel ATA and i've tryed all the options of Parallel ATA, but SATA isn't recognized.

I've got exactly the same problem today, tried adding an additional disk but the option for SATA is greyed out.

Looking for a BIOS update or something now......

Hi Nelio

Hope this Works for u!

During Power-On Self-Test (POST), press F10 to launch the BIOS Setup Utility (Phoenix BIOS).
On the Advanced Menu screen, select "Advanced Chipset Control."
Select the SATA Controller Mode Option >Enhanced field (defaults to "Compatible").
Select SATA RAID Enable >Enable.
Press F10 and select "Yes" to save the changes and close the BIOS Setup Utility.

Hi suhaasmh,

It doesn't work because the options of SATA are inaccessible (grayed out), as I showed on my 3rd post (attached).

Thanks!

Same problem on ML-110 359661-421 with motherboard 359661-421.
Sata Connector on motherboard and bios setup disabled, How can it be possible?

Thanks

Hi

The hard drive type must match the type of controller being used in the system:

* 80GB SATA 7200 rpm 1" Drive (Hot Plug and Non-Hot plug SATA Models)
* 160GB SATA 7200 rpm 1" Drive (Hot Plug SATA Models)
* 250GB SATA 7200 rpm 1" Drive (Hot Plug SATA Models)

Maximum Internal Storage:
* SATA (hot plug): 1TB (4 x 250-GB - internal drive bays and removable media bays)
* SATA (non-hot plug ): 320-GB (4 x 80-GB)

If you got other HDD - it can be the source of the problem.
