Can't configure RAID controller - ML 370 G4


I have a new ML370 G4 server (tower) with 1GB RAM, processor 3GHz & 2x34GB HD.
I want to configure RAID 0,1.

My problem is:
Power up the server, POST halts for several seconds I press F8 to open the ORCA main menu (follow the user guide) but I don't see the ORCA main menu.
I see the screen:
LSI Logic Corp. MPT BIOS

Select a configuration option:
1. Tape-base One button Disaster Recovery (OBDR)
2. Multi Initiator Configuration.
3. Exit

Then I retart the server and boot with SmartStart CD to open ACU but it don't see any arrays.

Does my server support RAID? If yes, how do I configure the RAID controller?

Please help, thanks in advance.

Re: Can't configure RAID controller - ML 370 G4

as you can see here probably your server has this controller

Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI host bus adapter
"... provides customers with the flexibility and speed they have come to expect from HP. ..... is ideal for HP tape arrays and larger non-RAID storage applications."

it does not support RAID it's ideal for JBOD

but there others options available for this server
Smart Array 6402/128 Controller
Smart Array P600/256 BBWC
as you can see here those support RAID

Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
