    Back to the basics.... 1. Check SATA cable is properly seated on both MB and drive 2. Power cable is properly joined (any loose) on drive 3. Drive spins up when power is applied to the server 4. Check Windows Device Manager Look Here and Here

    You might check jumper settings if it has any. Lacking that, the most obvious explanation is that it is an out-of-box failure. Not common for HP but certainly not unheard of.

    Is the disk connected to a RAID controller? If so (I believe our ML350 is all on a RAID controller), then your disk may be in an unconfigured state to the RAID. If you don't tell it whether to make this disk an active part of the array or a hot spare, then it may not automatically do anything with it. So, please check the RAID settings (typically accessed during the boot cycle) and let us know if that was the issue.
