Good day gentlemen,

I'm facing an issue with a HP Proliant DL320 G6 whereby none of the installed hard drives are detected in BIOS - which also mean any sort of RAID cannot be setup because I can't enter the option ROM.

This model has a P410i controller and an Intel "fakeraid" one as well, both of which are giving me this message: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/813x610q90/923/kwmGYt.jpg

I know the controllers are working because there were formerly 3X 300GB SAS drives which had no problems. I'm trying to use 4X Toshiba DT01ACA300 3TB 7200RPM SATA3 on original HP drive trays. The drives have been wiped and all partitions deleted.

There is no evidence, after spending way too much time googling this problem, to suggest that HP has locked out non-branded drives on this particular server. I was able to successfully flash the latest firmware but even after that the drives are not being detected.

Any advice or suggestions would be deeply appreciated.
