Lenovo TS150 doesn't detect HDDs with my Raid 520i controller

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 please20190128_134252_resized.jpgPOST20190129_082613_resized.jpg20190129_092051_resized.jpgThinkServer EaseyStartup - No HDDs detected

Hi RayGO,

 

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 hdds20190129_082628_resized.jpgMegaRAID BIOS Utility

Solved it.

 

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.
