Use the HP management tools that came with the system, specifically the array manager.

Pop the case open and have a look inside. ;)

There is no native way as windows sees the volumes not the physical disks

I checked, is using a CD called Easy setup CD. Where I find the step of configuring RAID 1 (mirroring) by using the easy cd?

Hardware RAID is totally transparent to Windows, therefore there is no way you can find out number of disks or RAID level in Windows Native. For HP ML150G6, you should have a CD by the name "HP Array Configuration Utility (ACU) Offline CD for Smart Array ". Otherwise you can download it from HP website and you have to install it into Windows, then you will have full control and monitor over the RAID.

When you boot up the server, does it not show the number of disks in the array?  If its SCSI using CTRL-A to get into the BIOS will allow you to see what disks on on the SCSI bus.
