Product: ProLiant ML301e Gen8 v2
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I have an old HP ProLiant ML301e Gen8 v2 Model 0 Server (P/N 717155-001) that was recently decommissioned.
I wish to convert it into a regular workstation running Windows 10 64-bit.
However, I am unable to find the correct storage and/or storage controller driver that would work and allow me to install Windows 10 64-bit.
Would appreciate any help on this, pointing me the right way to get the correct drivers.
Thank you in advance.

You may also want to post your question on the HPE community support forum -- ML Servers section.
As for drivers, since there will be only windows server drivers on the support page, I would suggest you use the latest windows server x64 drivers available and see if they work, such as 2008 R2, etc.
You may have to manually install the drivers, so don't give up if the auto install doesn't work.

you can install a PCI-e SATA or SCSI controller that has a boot rom and simply boot from that controller if the instructions below fail to work
for systems with the factory controller
Some of the HP Gen8 and Gen9 systems are shipping with either a Smart Array B320i, B140i, B120i, B110i, or other Bxxxi controller
power on and F9, to enter BIOS setup. Choose SATA options. (Default is Intelligent RAID array),
change to AHCI SATA (do not select the older SATA only option)
Reboot, and The Intelligent RAID initialization should now be replaced by HP SATA Initialization
you will have to search the web for a working win 10 driver if you need the onboard Raid enabled you should be able to manually "force' a win server driver under win 10
