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.

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