There was a huge change between G7 and Gen8 when it comes to 2.5" disk caddies - they simply won't fix into each other. To be fair the Gen8/9 caddies offer a lot of additional functionality that the G7 version couldn't but it was rather a testing time for a lot of organisations who had become used to generation-to-generation interoperability. So to confirm, ...

The chassis on this server model are either SFF (2.5") or LFF (3.5"). You can't mix and match the drive cages.

The bare disks are compatible. Assuming you speaking of regular 2.5" SAS disks. However, drives for G7 servers are cheap. Buy some from eBay and you won't have to deal with the caddy swap or any other unnecessary changes.

The only way to set the Product ID and Serial Number on a Gen8 server without going through RBSU(F9) manually is to use Conrep. You will need the 32-bit Linux version of Conrep to do it. It is not supported on Windows or 64-bit Linux. Here is how to change the product ID using conrep: Create a file called conrep.dat that contains the following(enter the ...

A single broken fan should never cause this kind of "critical" (that's what health light = red means) problem. Your server has probably six hot swappable fans that create a wind tunnel through the chassis, so if five are really up then you should be fine IMO. You need to get a handle on what component is failing/has failed/is getting too hot. Use HP ...

Have you logged into the management interface? that'll tell you if you have any hardware issues or if those disks just aren't assigned to a VDISK yet or not - there's no other way really, just connect to it and see. By the way, don't be too fast to update the firmware on the 1040/2040's at the moment, HPE have been releasing some very buggy versions of ...

If you installed Ubuntu from a USB drive, try connecting the USB drive again and reboot. If Ubuntu runs normally execute (device could change): sudo grub-install /dev/sda Disconnect the USB drive and restart the system. Based on 'ewwhite' answer.
