HP Storage Manager can't find RAID controller on a Proliant ML150 G5

HP ProLiant ML150 G5 Server


I can't get the Storage Manager software to detect the RAID storage controller.

The "Intel(R) ICH9 4 Port Serial ATA" controller is listed as functional in the device manager.

I also tried the steps in http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1267757
but it didn't help either.

Screenshots of the software/error message and driver info attached.

OK I found the solution at HP forums, the controller had to be enabled at the Bios because it was not configured to run in raid mode.
