Can't install Windows Server 2019 in ML350e v2 gen8 - can't see / recognize disk.

Hello!

I'm having an issue with an ML350e v2 gen8 that I received to setup, but I'm trying to install Windows Server 2019, and it doesn't see the disk/array. This server has 2 phisical 300Gb SAS disks and 1 logical disk in RAID 1 out of those two. For comparison, I've installed the same Windows (via a bootable USB) in a DL380p gen8 and it worked just fine; the only significant difference I see between the two servers is that the DL380p comes with Smart Array P420i, whilst the ML350e comes with DYNAMIC Smart Array P420i and I'm not sure what the difference is.

I've already tried deleting and recreating the array, running the OS installation from the HP utility tool or from the boot up.

Please let me know hnow can I get the Windows installation program to see the logical disk so I can install it. I have a growingly inpatient client waiting for this.

Thanks in advance!
