You need to run the HPSSA utility to configure the drives attached the the Dynamic Smart Array, or go into RBSU and change the controller mode from RAID to plain SATA AHCI mode. I don't have acces to an ML10 v2, so I'm not sure if HPSSA is available when you press F5 or F10 during POST.  There is an offline version, but you must download and boot from the SPP media to access it.

This server has no intelligent provisioning, so better see this advisory

http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=mmr_kc-0128448

or this thread
