Hi, dont know much about Linux. But this sounds more hardware to me.

If I were you I'd go in to the Array Manager for the card before you load the OS at POST, something like CTRL+A I'd imagine. See if you can see the disks at this point. If you can't see the disks upgrade the Controller Firmware / Server Bios etc and try again.

If you can see the disks at this point then it will be down to the Linux setup config, which I'm afriad I can't help you with. Taxi!
