To remedy this situation, do one of the following:

Update the controller firmware to version B148 or greater. The firmware update is located on the technical support page on the Web site.

2Install the new hard drive.

3Turn on the server.

4During the server startup procedure, press CTRL+H to open the WebBIOS utility and perform the RAID migration or create another array for the new drive.

5When done, exit WebBIOS, then reboot the server.
