I am having the exact same issue on a BL460c inside a C3000 enclosure.

I've tried the 2008 x64 drivers for SATA/SAS from the HP website but it still doesn't pickup the drive.. I've also tried installing from an external USB CD Drive but still no go..

Can anyone tell me what drivers it's actually looking for ??

Sorry to ask, but you are using a DVD Drive right?
