If the drives show up at all, chances are you only need to work around
the power-up issue in Dell HDD firmware.

Here's what I had to do to get the drives going in my R515:

sd-config-list = "SEAGATE ST3300657SS", "power-condition:false",
                 "SEAGATE ST2000NM0001", "power-condition:false";

(that's for Seagate 300GB 15k SAS and 2TB 7k2 SAS drives, depending on
your drive model the strings might differ)
