SATA RAID on ProLiant DL140

I couldn't understand how to configure raid.

From manual: "To run the utility, press the Ctrl+A keys or the F8
key (depending on the version of the ROM) when prompted by the following message during system startup:"

But bios startup doesn't ask me to press Ctrl+A or F8, there only F10, F12 and Ctrl+S availalbe.
F10 doesn't contain anything about RAID.

No.
As I said "F10 doesn't contain anything about RAID"
I couldn't find this option anywhere.

My full model name is "HP ProLiant DL140 G3 5130 SATA" and it has SATARAID 0/1

Hi,
change "SATA Controller Mode Option" in BIOS to "Enhanced". Then a new item "SATA RAID" appears and you can set it to "Enable".

Re: SATA RAID on ProLiant DL140

When using non-hot-plug SATA hard drives, RAID function is embedded in the BIOS chipset. While for hot-plug SATA/SAS hard drives, the function is based on the installed standard height/full-length PCI-X SATA/SAS controller board. The procedure below applies to systems using non-hot-plug SATA drives.
CAUTION: Back up any data stored on the hard drives before performing the procedures below. Theconfiguration process erases all data on the hard drives.

NOTE: Before performing the procedure below, verify that the two non-hot-plug SATA drives are installed in the system.
To set up RAID for non-hot-plug SATA drives:
1. Turn on the monitor and the server.
If the server is already turned on, save your data and close all open applications, then restart the server.
2. During POST, press F10 to launch the PhoenixBIOS Setup Utility.
If you fail to press F10 before POST is completed, you will need to restart the server.
3. In the Setup Utility screen, click the Advanced menu tab.
4. Select the Advanced Chipset Control field.
5. Select the SATA Controller Mode Option field, then press the plus (+) or minus (-) key to set the field value to
Enhanced.
6. Select the SATA RAID Enable field, then press the plus (+) or minus (-) key to set the field value to Enabled.
7. Press F10, then select Yes to save the changes you made and close the Setup Utility.
The system automatically reboots. You will be prompted to enter the HP Embedded SATA Setup Utility.
8. Press F8 to access the HP Embedded SATA Setup Utility.
9. In the Option menu box, select Array Configuration Utility.
10. In the Main Menu box, select Configure Drives.
11. Select the hard drives you want to include in the RAID setup, then press Enter.
A warning message appears.
12. Type Yes then press Enter.
The selected drives will be configured with array information.
13. After the completing the initial drive configuration, select Create Arrays in the Main Menu.
14. Select the hard drives you want to include in the array, then press Enter.
15. In the Array Properties box, set the values for the RAID properties.
To view possible options for each property, select a property, then press F1.
a. Select an array type (RAID level).
b. Enter an array label.
c. Select the stripe size.
d. Select the manner of creating the array.
16. Select Done, then press Enter.
The system automatically configures the RAID level, erasing all existing data on the hard drives.
17. Once the configuration process is complete, press Esc to close the HP Embedded SATA Setup Utility.
18. In the Exit Utility prompt, select Yes, then press Enter.
The system will automatically reboot and initialize the created array.
