SSD could not be found?

I have a Gen8 now and plan to use a Kingston V300 240G SSD to setup Windows Server 2012 R2.

But bios always can not detect my SSD when I directly attached SSD to ports1 without caddy.

 

I have tried attached other ports and it still not work.

 

Could it be work if I use ICY dock or attach in ODD bay?

Is the Gen8's b120i RAID controller in RAID mode or AHC?.

 

If it's in RAID mode, you will need to enter the RAID BIOS and configure the SSD as a single drive RAID 0 array for it to be recognized. If you want to put the system into AHCI (to avoid the RAID business) be aware that the fan speed of the Gen8 is not properly controlled in AHCI mode (ie: the fan will likely run faster than it would in RAID mode).

Thanks for your help!

 

It's raid mode now and I will follow your direction.

 

If I have not configure SSD in RAID BIOS yet, is that normal no physical driver message showed in ilo4 monitor screen?

 

And I have tried AHCI mode before, also could not find driver, is that correct?

I would update all of the BIOS and firmware on the Gen8.

Where do you plan to mount the SSD?

 

The 2012 installer will not see the drive until it is part of a RAID set, in this case a single drive RAID0.

not plan to use ODD, wanna to use port 1-4 for most quick SATA speed.

 

Maybe it's suitable for me to use ICY dock mentioned in other topics in my case?

Fastest speed is on bay's 1&2 SATA6G. If you put the SSD in a bay you need an adapter to make it fit properly:

An SSD connected to the ODD SATA3G port will still be much faster than a disk drive.
