Proliant ML110 G6 Embedded SATA RAID - how to configure?

I've read everything before purchasing this unit and found on arrival that the maintenance and service guide doesn't match what's in the BIOS. When I enable hard disk controller for ACHI or RAID, I'm not prompted for the Array Config Utility. I'm not sure if its even possible because I don't find any embedded RAID drivers for Win2003 or Win 2008 Server on website. I also ran across a Google search stating that fakeRAID was disabled in this unit, but BIOS option never removed.

I want to load Win2003 R2 Standard. I have 2 x 160Gig SATA drives and want to RAID 1 for mirroring. All the product documentation states its possible. I did downgrade BIOS from 12/14/09 to version on website dated 11/18/09, which is the latest available on web and curious why factory ships newer version not available to public. Older BIOS doesn't have ACU option either.

When I boot Easy CD Setup and run Insight Diagnotics are start OS load, they both see hard drives as IDE controller. No RAID option there either.

Any suggestions from those in the know would be greatly appreciated, as always. Thanks!

Donwload current BIOS Firmware.

It enables RAID on the Motherboard.
