Trying to install AlmaLinux 8 on a Dell R640 equipped with 10 x 7.68TB NVMe U.2 drives. All 10 show up in iDRAC storage inventory so they're recognized, but only 9 show up in AlmaLinux install (via IPMI). Curious why and if there's a fix?

I was advised to disable Intel VMD (Volume Management Device) in BIOS, but I cannot find that option anywhere in BIOS. I checked via iDrac 9 and BIOS directly.

BIOS Version 2.18.1
iDRAC Firmware Version 7.00.00.00

I replicated the issue on AlmaLinux 8 /9, Centos 8 Stream, Ubuntu 20, Ubuntu 22.
