Proliant DL185 and windows storage server 2003 disk

I recently purchased a DL185 with WSS and an additional 9-1 TB disk. The server came with 2-250GB disks and the OS imaged on the disk. I also received a system recovery dvd. I removed the 250gig disk and put the 2-1TB disk in. Powered up, pressed F8 and created a logical drive using RAID 1+0 gave a dive of just under 1 TB. Saved configeration, dvd detected and boots. I choose the only selection allowed to restore factory image. Then an error message says the the logical drive configeration is not supported contact HP support. I don't see where the OS has any fault tolerance.Should I be able to boot the server with 1 250GB hard drive if it has RAID 1

If i remember correctly, the drive partition layout needs to be exactly as it was for the factory restore. I believe 2 Partitions, one for OS and one for Restore partition. I dont remeber the sizes for these. When the system has restored itself, you can partition the remaining space.

Hope it helps.
