I have a Lenovo ThinkServer TS150 70UB-0009UX in which I installed a TS RAID 520i (9340-8i) PCIe controller. Installed it on PCIe slot 3 as that is the only one that supports this adaptor. I connected my two 3.5" 2TB Enterprise SATA 6Gbps HDDs via the cable (Mini SAS cables?) provided with the RAID card. When I power the server on it says: Product Avago MEgaRaid SAS 9340-8i, but capacity 0MB. So no HDDs detected, help me out please
Solved! Go to Solution.

Do you see any pop-up message asking to press any key to enter the LSI RAID BIOS Configuration Utility?
You will need to enter the configuration utility during POST and setup up the RAID/virtual drives.

It's asking me to press ctrl+r to go to the Avago MegaRAID SAS 9340-8i BIOS Configuration Utility. When I enter I see:
Virtual Drive Management: No Configuration Present!
If I go to Operations, these options are greyed out: create virtual drive, foreign config, manage preserved cache, drive security, make unconfigured good, make jbod. The options that are not greyed out are: Clear configuration, disable date protection and advanced software options. It still seems to me that the server is not recognizing the hdds

Forgot to connect the Mini SAS connector cable (RAID-->HDD cable) with the power cable that goes from the motherboard to the Mini SAS connector cable.
