Adding additional disk to PERC 3 RAID 5 config

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.
