Configuring RAID array question

hi there,

i've same problem while configuring raid arry with my new dl320 server. i've two SATA 250GB drives

i followed this steps:

1on boot press f8
2. crate arrey selected both, raid 1, quick init
3. i make the array bootable and staus is optimal

i've activated the arrays in bios configuration utility

but when i boot with smartstart it says that ther are no bootable devices and if i go in ACU to try configure it doesnt find any controller !!!!

is it normal ???

Federico,
I had the same problem with DL360, until i was told that I have to use HP first steps CD.
these servers require first to use this CD which helps you configure the server and then you install the OS.

after I used the cd it worked out fine (you should have gotten that cd with the server)
