HP Smart Array B120i won't detect a new physical drive

Hello, sorry for my bad English,

 

I had a SATA 2.5'' hard drive (Seagate, ST1000LM035). I wanted to use it in my ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 having an HP Smart Array B120i, so I used the MB882SP-1S-2B 2.5'' to 3.5'' converter.

 

The server had 1 physical drive, configured in a RAID0 providing 1 logical drive.

 

But when I boot the server and run the HP Smart Storage Administrator, it doesn't show the new hard drive (not even in unassigned units)...

 

Is there any step I missed?

 

Don't hesitate to ask me for a diagnostic report, if you think it could help.

 

Note: the new hard drive is not detected by the operating system too, but I guess that's quite normal, since it is not assigned to any logical volume.

 

Any help appreciated!
