    A2U8X25S3HSDK 8x2.5" hotswap drive's not spinning (S2600CP2J mobo)


      Hello people,


      I have connected the 4 pin power connector into the bay backplane PCB, I have connected the mini-SAS to x4 SATA cable 1 per black sata port on the motherboard (as its advised not to use the 2 white SATA ports). I have also connected the IC2 cable, the sata ports are in AHCI mode. When I power on the server I can see the amber light on the drive cages flash for 0.1 seconds or so but after that its dead, drives do not spin and are not seen in the BIOS.


      I have recently run an BIOS upgrade process that upgraded various parts of the motherboard and it did detect the 8x2.5" hotswap bay within that so I believe its working as it should be.... yet its not seen within the BIOS or windows. Am I missing a BIOS setting somewhere or something?

      Intel 8x 2.5inch hot swap bay (A2U8X25S3HSDK) comes with the IC2 + mini-sata to 4x SATA cable.

      Any pointers will be much appreciated,
