Background parity initializzzation

(I've seen similar questions been posted before, but the answers didn't fit my situation, so sorry for repeating.)

I just put togeter ProLiant ML370 G4 with five disks and array card. In SmartStart I created a mirror and a RAID-5. After the RAID-5 was created, there's a flashing Information Status Message in SmartStart's ACU, saying that:

"Background parity initialization is currently queued or in progress on logical drive 2 (RAID 5 in array B). If background initialization is queued, it will start when I/O is performed on the drive. When background initialization is complete, the performance of the logical drive will improve."

As I understand it, from browsing and searching around this site, this is normal and nothing will happen until I for instance format the drives. However, my problem is that I don't see the option to format any drives, and I can't get past this situation, since all other options at the "start menu" in SmartStart is greyed out.

Any help appreciated.
