I recently installed the HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 Update 3 version 650.U126.96.36.199 released on June 2019 and based on VMware ESXi 6.5.0 Update 3. I think this is pregen version from HP.
I have a P222 Raid Card installed. ESXI does this RAID card. However its not presenting the disk connected to it to me.
When I go to datastore - I can see only one datastore - which is the datastore esxi is installed and which i use to save my VM's
I can see the HPE SMART ARRAY P222 storage card - but none of the HDD's/ or the datastore
What am I doing wrong?

The SDM R4 is SOLD OUT!
The SDM R4 is a bracket that facilitates mounting two additional 2.5″ drives in a HP MicroServer Gen8. There are also mounting holes for fans across the bottom to help cool RAID/SATA cards. The kit includes all the fasteners needed to install.
With optional Stackers you can run four 2.5″ drives on the SDM R4. The SDM R4 will support four 9.5MM 2.5″ drives. If you want to run four drives on the SDM R4, you need to order SSB stacking brackets listed below. One set of SSB per drive pair, four drives will require two SSB kits. Because of the size of the SDM R4, if you are going to boot your server using the internal USB port, you will need to use a USB stick that is shorter than 1″.

Wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction here. Have just replaced the CPU on my gen 8 microserver. Went according to the video above. Upon booting the server up, there is a clicking sound coming from the main board. Regular as clockwork, and the server isn't posting. Any ideas? I've swapped back to the G1610T CPU, but still the same issue. And just make it interesting, I don't have access to a monitor or keyboard.
So yesterday i dropped my surface on tile flooring. When i picked it up i just clicked the home button to see if it still turned on, it did. However when i got home later i noticed it had a huge hair line crack. When i turned it back on , it sent me to my lock screen and the screen was completely unresponsive. i called microsoft didnt have the warranty so im stuck. i was wondering if i could just buy a case with a keyboard, but i know it may require bluetooth which i cant get to because im on the lock screen. I'm making a last ditch effort is it worth it?
