We've got a HP ML 350 with P410 Smart array controller.
In the boot process I can't find any option to enter the
configuration utility.
How can I configure the RAID Controller?

No the server is new - no software on it.

I bet you missed the option to enter ORCA because of the stupid splash screen that covers up all the POST messages, I hate it, it ought to be turned off in BIOS by default.

You're better off configuring the array with the ACU than with ORCA anyway, it's more flixible, it's on the SmartStart CD under maintenance option.
