HP DL380 G4 + MSA70 and Windows 2012 R2

Not long ago I open a EE question about setting up a DL380G4 that has a P800 and already attached 3 MSA70 for use in our Lab running Storage Spaces.

Issues
1) When I goes into the bios on the P800 I only see one MSA70. I have confirmed they are chained as follows host goes to input on MSA1 an the output goes to the input on MSA70 and so on.

2) ON the HP site the DL380 G6 had software that supports 2012 R2, which software bundle contains the HP array config tools which I believe I should be using correct...

This is an old server we are resusing and has been a while since I worked with the P800 and MSA70 so please bare with me

Windows 2012 support starts at Gen 6 servers
Which means that sporadic failure falls under "works as intended"

Hint: no modern linux supports your "raid controller" anymore....

Ok I am confused here.... Even outside of the OS in the P800 bios I cannot see the two other chained enclosures
