Dell R610 Unified Server Configurator OS Install RAID Cfg option

Hi,

I have a bare R610 and I would like to install Windows 2008 R2 via USC.

The USC page has the option to either: 1) Configure RAID, 2) Proceed to install OS.

Below the options, it shows the current cfg:
PERC H700:
Virtual disk 0, RAID1
Virtual disk 1, RAID5

6Gbps SAS HBA
( Nothing shown under here )

I want to install the OS on VD0, RAID1. Doesn't this mean I'm good to go? Or, do I still need to choose Configure RAID?

Also, what's the 6Gbps SAS HBA entry?
LVL 27
