HP Proliant DL145 G2 - Array Problem

Hi
Today I tried to install win2008 over my "new" server (proliant dl145 g2).

I noticed that my server comes with LSI Logic SCSI controller (I think LSI1030) and 2 hdd (72gb) configured with raid 1 redundancy.

Win2008 setup is unable to create a new partition over my first hdd, even with LSI LOGIC x64 drivers loaded during installation.

Another problem is that I can't recreate the disk array because I can't find LSI Bios...

I can only press F8 during controller startup and options are:

-> Disaster recovery
-> Change ID

Where I can recreate the array?

Thanks
(I'm Italian, sorry for my bad english... ;)

w2k3 x64 is the latest they list drivers for.
