HP Proliant N40L with HP Smart Array P410 256mb BBWC problems


Recommended Posts



First time posting.

I have an HP Proliant N40L and have installed an HP Smart Array P410 RAID PCI-e card, however the system won't detect the actual card.


Is there a BIOS update required or has anyone had a similar issue with the N40L detecting RAID cards?

Do you have the stock BIOS or modified BIOS on the N40L?

Have you tried the P410 in another system to confirm that it works?

If you did the BIOS-MOD and Disabled the SATA/IDE Port Combining that will also Disable your MicroServer seeing the P410 -- Disabling SATA/IDE Port Combining withBIOS-MOD Disables MicroServer Seeing P410
