    I'm running an HP Proliant ML110 G5 server and tryiing to install an Intel 730 SSD in it, bt BIOS doesn't detect the SSD.
    I allready had an issue creating a raid on the onboard controller bigger then 1TB.

    I allready did some investigation and the chipset ICH9R should support bigger raid sets and SSD's, so i think BIOS is the limiting factor (i am running latest HP version).

    I opened the decompresses bios file with Phoenix bios editor, it gives some unsupported module errors but opens the file.
    OPROM01.ROM seems to be the RAID option rom.

    A look inside the option rom with Winhex shows:
    UªXé HP ICH9R RAIDBIOS` œ Ad
    aptec RAID BIOS v5.0 2235Copy
    right Adaptec, Inc. 1998-2007 ‹ÿ
    PCIR†€"( X € Adaptec
    Inc. Adaptec ICHx RAID## I $PnP​

    This is strang because i expected Intel, not adaptec... But it seems a very old option ROM.

    I also tried running the CBROM tool to get more information, but it just blocks (no W7 compatible ??)

    Can i replace it with an intel option ROM ??

    Who can give some advice ?

    Hi,

    this server only has an onboard Intel SATA controller (6 ports), there is no SAS connection.
    2 ports are connected to regular hard disk, these are detected and working fine, only SSD is not detected. It is not port related as i allready switched the ports...
    ICH9R is Intel, right ?
