ML350 G5 SATA server drive sizes

have a ml350 G5 with SATA RAID controller, 6 x Hot plug 750 Gb SATA drives, 1 x RAID 5 logical drive.
Win 2003 R2 Standard installed, 30 Gb C: drive.
I cannot configure the remaining +/- 3.4 Tb as one single drive. Is there anything else to configure?
Also cannot convert the 3.5 Tb drive to a dynamic drive, it is greyed out.
Any suggestions

The onboard Exxx RAID controller only supports Logical drives of up to 2 Tb.
Upgrade tp P400 or P800 RAID controller to support drive sizes of greater than 2 Tb.
Thanks
