So I have got the following configuration :
So i figured out that i need ORCA utility to set the controller itself to be bootable
but after storage logical drive initialisation where i see the array nothing else happens.

More than likely a problem with the supermicro bios or settings. I would update the system board bios first and see if that helps then look deeply at the settings if not. That is what you get for putting a smart array in another box - literally no support from anyone. I would look at the supermicro support list and get the generic (lsi?) recommended card as it will probably work better with everything including the lights on the drive enclosure. HP gear works best with HP gear and its not necessarily a bad thing.

Hello David, thank you for the reply.
What else can i say we are a major distributor of Supermicro for our country but its first time for me to assemble HP component with a Supermicro MB.
Of course i have send a mail to Supermicro support and they returned some suggestion with MB BIOS settings but that didnt work either.
For last they told me to try with another MB from DR series i tried with 2, DRL and DRD also with SCM and some Desktop ASUS.
All the same i cannot get access to ORCA utility where i need to set the controller as boot.
When i roll back the controller firmware with the prevision version which is 3.22 i get the infinite stroke loop after the logical drive initialisation.
If i set PCIe setting to BOOT from UEFI only it stops seeing the controller at all i tried with PCIe slot GEN 1,2,3 on x8 and x4x4
The controller performance otherwise is very good.
