Move non-Raid disk to a server with hardware RAID (HP)


New Member
I have a disk with data on it used on a Supermicro server which has no RAID controller, I've put it into an HP server, and I can see the disk and it's containing data but while I'm trying to mount it this errors happen:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.
And using fsck /dev/sda1 leads to an other error indicating the physical disk size is 8KB short:

e2fsck 1.42.13 (17-May-2015)
The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 244190390 blocks
The physical size of the device is 244182198 blocks
Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt!

It's the output of `hpacucli ctrl all show config detail`

Any idea on how to fix this issue? maybe changing a parameter on raid array?
