"Local HP Disk" shown instead of HDD details

Hello all

 

For a little over a year, I've been running a MicroServer Gen8 with the following (baremetal) configuration:

1x 120GB SSD in ODD Tray

4x WD Red 2TB connected to the onboard B120i controller

Xeon E3-1265l V2

Windows Server 2016

 

The setup was fairly easy once I realised I had to create separate arrays for each disk.
In the OS, they are all found as "Local HP Disk" with some string after it.

 

I was under the assumption this "worked as designed".

 

However, recently I purchased another Microserver Gen8 (G2020T), which was pre-configured.
In the installed OS, the disk details are shown instead of "Local HP Disk".
I have checked both storage controller configurations and they seem identical...

Both devices have also been updated to the most recent patch-level.


In a Youtube guide on how to install DSM on ESXi I also notice the hard drive details being shown instead of what I see.
Guide:

My screen (switched to ESXi instead of baremetal):

Do any of you have an idea which setting allows me to show the disk details instead of "Local HP Disk"?

 

Thanks in advance!

"Local HP Disk" means you use the onboard B120i controller for RAID.

If you want to see the disks as in your example you need to switch to AHCI

Have just checked the BIOS of the other server (where disk details are shown) and there the SATA controller is also set to B120ï, and not AHCI...

Or do I have to look someplace else?
