How do I reset the onboard raid controller for an hp proliant dl360 g3

I have a controller that is operating erratically. Is there a way to reset it? Is it possible it's hanging on to a config that could be causing problems? This server has had a few operating systems with different raid configs and I am trying to do a fresh build at this point. I don't need any data recovered or backed up.

Use smart start CD and there you have an option "erase configuration".
In this way you will get server in the state it was bought.
No raid config, disks erased,...

Reboot.
I believe F8 at the prompt will get you into the raid conf. utility. You can delete/create configuration from there. If the disks are blank it will automatically build an array.  2 disks=raid1, >2disks=raid5.

I was looking for more of a hard reset which I see now is an option with smart start so I am going to give that a shot. I will post here with results.  

I have deleted all arrays but it still appears to be attempting to rebuild an array that was previously broken.
