I am running a Poweredge 1550 with a PERC 3 and would like to know if there is a way to add an additional hard drive to an existing RAID 5 array through the BIOS (Ctrl+M).  I know I can use OpenManage, but am curious if it can be done this way.

No, you must use Array Manager to perform the required tasks.

You'd think that they would give you the option from the BIOS....
