HP MS G8 2.5" drive bracket


Recommended Posts

thanks for the replies - yes, driver was installed beforehand but nothing showing up at all in Windows, iLo or anything I can see during BIOS.

 

I'll try the marvel card, I'd much prefer the driverless install.

Fitted it just now 8 internal drives (4x2.5" 4x3.5")   moved the 2.5" esata drive inside and powered it from the internal usb port 13 drives now dont think im gona squeeze much more in   Intel PC

I advise you use the Marvel SATA 6G Controller Drivers Version 1.2.0.1041 WHQL (Miniport driver)

instead of the microsoft ahci driver as by default the ms ahci driver drops the pci-e link speed down

and once in a while you get a port reset in the event log

 

There are two way's of fixing this

 

1) in power management turn off pci-e power saving

2) or install marvel's drivers

If the cards not even showing up in Device Manager, he's not going to be able to install drivers...

 

If it isn't, then it's either broken, or the Gen8 doesn't see it at all.

You can install the drivers without the card being installed. That's often recommended by OEMs so that the drivers will be automatically picked up when the device is installed.

 

That said, if the device isn't showing up in Device Manager at all, then something else is going on. 'Course, he hasn't actually said the card isn't showing up in Device Manager.

The only cards that will show up in iLo are HP supported cards.
