Did you select "Fast Initialize" when creating the VD?

My bad - I mixed it with an ir3 controller. Sorry about that.

Several questions:

Which kind of RAID are you using, IM/IME or IS?

Have you updated the http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20393 firmware of RMS2LL040?

Have you tried a drive from the http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-031779.htm Tested hardware and operating system list?

Are you using a hot-swap backplane?

Ideally the fixed drive bay support SATA drive only. If you want to use SAS drive you should use a SAS/SATA backplane (with R1304BTLSHBN system).

However, you may want to take a look at the SAS-SATA adapter below, although I'm not 100% sure whether it will fit the drive bay or not:
