ML310 G3 EMBEDDED SATA RAID PROBLEM

I have some problem with an PROLIANT ML310 G3.
IS the first time that i use HP SATA RAID CONTROLLER.

I have a configuration with 2 SATA 160 Gb HDU.
I want use the EMBEDDED SATA RAID controller for make a RAID-1 volume.
I have enabled the EMBEDDED SATA RAID , and set the CONTROLLER IPL ORDER to boot first INTETL 82801GR SATA RAID CONTROLLER.

I have configured the RAID-1 ARRAY , select array as bootable , and choose the CLEAR for initializing volume.
It warn for "initialize may request FEW HOURS , but i think that 20 HOURS estimated ( 1 % every 12 minutes ) is very excessive ...
It's normal this very long time ?? ( first problem )

I have no much time to wait .
I have deleted the array and create new array , using the QUICK FORMAT.
It's warn that QUICK FORMAT need to execute the VERIFY W/FIX to make DRIVE CONSISTENT.
What means ? how i can execute VERIFY W/FIX ( second problem )

I have booted with SMARTSTART 7.51 , and it warn - There is no bootable drive configured on this system - boot controller : intel corp. unknow device 27c3
Is supported SATA EMBEDDED RAID CONTROLLER by SMART START 7.51 ?? ( third problem )
And latest ... I need to install WINDOWS SBS 2003 PREMIUM R2 ITALIAN.
Is supported by SMART START 7.51 ??


PS : I have already update the BIOS to latest version.

Someone can help me ?? and excuse me for my poor english writing....

Thanks a lot.

The below link should provide answer to one of your query:

If raid is enabled OS should be installed manually and Smart Start assisted installation won't work.
