Proliant DL160 G5, Solaris and SATA RAID controller

Hello,
Have tried to install Sun Solaris 10 5/08 on my DL160, Quad Xeon@2GHz, 6GB Ram, 4x250GB, non hot swappable sATA HD. Thought that following the deployment guide was a good thing and so have patched my miniroot accordingly with the HP supplied Broadcom NIC and the CPQAry3 drivers. I would to try two scenarios in order to test performance of the HW RAID 0+1 on the embedded SATA controller. Unfortunately the only way found to install the OS is disabling the RAID mode of the embedded SATA controller, having the OS to see the four disks instead of the one RAID unit. Installation stops with "no disks found" message. Anyone succeded installing Sol10 on the embedded SATA Ctrl configured as RAID?

No -- we're trying the same thing on a DL380 and Solaris 10 - 2x73GB raid 0+1 and 3 single volume drives.
