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)

How would that work when the drive type is unknown (to format)? I assumed if sd knows the type, so will format.

I haven't looked at the code recently, but if it is the same parser as used elsewhere, then a partial match should work. Can someone try it out and report back to the list?
sd-config-list = "SEAGATE ST", "power-condition:false";

Well I finally got back to testing this box...

Yes, that shorthand fixes the power-up issue (tested from a cold start).
