Hyper-V Server 2012 with HP Smart Array B110i RAID Controller

    Question

  • I'm setting up a new server for a client and attempting to install Hyper-V Server 2012.

    When I turn on 'Embedded SATA RAID' within the BIOS settings on the ML330 G6, the Hyper-V installation cannot find any available disks for the installation to proceed. I searched for drivers for the 250GB SATA drives that are installed to no avail. I installed Windows and it can see the RAID1 array perfectly fine.

    Upon turning off the 'Embedded SATA RAID' function in the BIOS, the Hyper-V installation can see both drives. Hurrah. But now I can't use HW RAID :(

    I've turned 'Embedded SATA RAID' back on and tried the Hyper-V installation once more, again no drives available.

    What's the go? Hyper-V doesn't support HP's Smart Array controllers, or this controller specifically? But Windows does??

  • Hi Jack,

    Please provide me below information:

    • Is your server model is certified with Windows Server 2012?
    • What is HP Smart Array Controller version?
    • Is firmware up-to-date?

    Your model is not certified with Windows Server 2012. Kindly search for "Implementing Microsoft Windows Server 2012 on HP ProLiant servers", You will find a PDF document from HP site. This document will clarify your doubts.

    Regards
