HPE ProLiant gen 10 in legacy boot mode does not see hard drives in boot order section

I have HPE ProLiant gen 10 server with 8 drives. If I use legacy boot mode, but there is nothing in legacy boot order setting. And server tries to boot just from the ethernet.

I have installed grub on hard drives and need to boot from them.

Please any idea what to do? Some kind of another bios settings? I am not an expert in hardware/bios setting.


Use the Embedded SATA Configuration option to enable embedded chipset SATA (Serial Advanced
Technology Attachment) controller support. You can select AHCI or HPE Smart Array S100i SR Gen10 SW RAID support. Make sure that you are using the correct operating system drivers for your selected option.
Dynamic Smart Array is not supported when the boot mode is configured to Legacy BIOS Mode.
Enabling Dynamic Smart Array RAID results in data loss or data corruption on existing SATA drives.
Back up all drives before enabling this option.
See your operating system documentation before enabling SATA AHCI support to ensure your base media drivers support this feature.
