My mistake. I thought that the document has information about
configuring the array itself in the beginning. Nevertheless it's not
only about Windows, it's about hpacucli which is very useful tool.
As Jim said are there any messages when you turn on the server.
Check every option in BIOS which mentions RAID, arrays or SATA
HP have very good documentation - search about:
HP ProLiant ML150 Series Server User Guide
HP ProLiant ML150 Maintenance and Service Guide
Configuring Arrays on HP Smart Array Controllers Reference Guide
