HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 ODD Boot?


I just picked up a Microserver Gen 8 and I'm using it for a home NAS for personal files and media. I wanted to use a 60GB SSD for a boot drive, allowing me to have all 4 drive bays free. However, I am unable to boot from the ODD bay UNLESS I put the SSD into RAID1 from within the ILO suite. Then I am able to boot to the drive like normal. 

How would I go about fixing this? People have said it's a pretty bad way of setting it up and in my opinion its a pretty botched way. So how would I go about just allowing normal SSD boot without using RAID and just seeing it as a normal SSD?
