They are Dell branded WD disks and I haven't done anything to the
HBA's firmware, so that's stock Dell as well. The drives are,
specifically are WD3001BKHG models. The firmware actually does expose
the disks unless they're part of a RAID group, so that should actually
work. I'll try te power-condition workaround you mentioned.
