One of my friend is having a problem installing one HP Proliant DL 360 G7 server. The server has on-board RAID (I think so) and it has a PCI RAID P411 also. Still the server is raw, nothing installed, no HDD Raid formation. If he opens the utility of the on-board RAID he can see all his disks, but not yet configured in any array formation. And if he opens the utility of the PCI Raid card, he can't see any HDD.

What he wants is to disable the on-board RAID and divert all the HDD to this secondary PCI Raid card.

What he has done so far;
           1. In the server BIOS, select the secondary PCI RAID card as the default boot device
           2. Disable on-board RAID from its own utility

Now he said he re-booted the system, and wen to the utility of the second PCI RAID, but still can't see hard disks.

Any suggestion?
