ML310 G5P: RAID not working and SBS 2008 hanging at start

Hi everybody,

I'm trying to setup a server HP Proliant ML310 G5P.
I have 2 distinct issues which might be linked?!

First, when I enable the RAID setting in the BIOS the server doesn't Windows anymore and keeps on rebooting.

Second, when RAID setting is disabled, once logged into Windows Small Business Server 2008 (fully updated), it displays the Windows SBS Console and seems to have some services/process "frozen". The "Network Essentials Summary" are all in the "Querying" status. When I try to open Internet Explorer the process starts but no window displayed. When I plug a USB key it doesn't install or recognise it.
But if you let the server in that state for 2-3 hours, at some point it automatically unlocks and everything appears (status, IE window, etc...) as normal and the server works normally.

Does someone have any idea?!
