proliant microserver g1610t hdd not showing


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am in the process of setting up my new hp proliant g1610t.


So far I have installed windows server 2012 onto a ssd.


Today I attempted to install an extra HDD - WD Red 2tb, however the system does not seem to be detecting the device.


I can hear the HDD spinning so it is definately cradled correctly. Maybe I need to do something with inteligent provisioning?


I have tried the HDD in different bays and still the same problem.


Any advice would be greatfully appreciated. This is my first server build and first time using inteligent provision and smart array.


Thanks in advance!

Did you add the drive as a RAID0 array?



I did not add the drive to an array, im guessing that was the problem as it has sorted and it is now visible.


Never used RAID/Array controllers before so not 100% on why or when its used.


A further question - I will be adding an identical HDD in the near future to mirror the one just installed, will this have to be in the same RAID/Array? I assume not as I believe I can just select the drives to mirror from disk management.

With HP, you need to add EVERY drive through the array.  So, if the next drive is a single, do exactly what you just did and add it as a RAID0.
