In your case you cannot configure a hardware RAID.

You need to order Smart Array Controller in order to create RAID.

Server will be shipped with one of these controllers.

Smart Array 6i Controller - is integrated in motherboard

HP Smart Array P600 Controller - is the 64-bit, PCIX 133-MHz Card (should be added in the order)

Re: raid support or not

Well, To be honest you cannot do that.

The only RAID level you can run with this configurations is RAID 0 also known as JBOD (Just a Bounch of Disks), and as it name says is just some disks and the System (OS) will recongnize them alll of them but as a different letter as logical each one.

I recommend you to get a Smart Array controller, HP also has a very cheap ones.

Thanks
