Verify that the disk drive backplane is seated properly at the bottom, in the small slot near the DVD drive.
The mini-SAS plug that terminates the short SAS/SATA cable must be inserted into the upper mini-SAS connector on the disk backplane. This short cable connects the SATA DVD to its USB-SATA bridge on the motherboard. The longer SAS/SATA cable connects drive bays 4 and 5 to a storage device in the rear of the system. The lower mini-SAS connector on the disk backplane requires the standard, four-channel mini-SAS cable for drive bays 0 to 3.
