Is this a Dl165 G5 or a G5p . Also have you tried to change the sata
settings in the bios from AHCI to RAID or compat ? I am currently
using the G5 , G5p and G7 with 7.3 , 7.4 and 8.3 and , I have seen
this issue once or twice but I could not remember what the fix was. I
think playing with the bios options for AHCI and reseatting the cables
and backplane resolved this for me the last time.
