HP DL380G7 migrate from RAID0 to RAID10

I have a HP dl380G7 server with P410i with 512MB of cache, battery and SAAP.
Server was at start installed with two 300GB SAS disks in RAID0 configuration to check if performance will satisfy the costumer. Now finally two additional disks have arrived and I want to migrate from RAID0 to RAID10. I have tried to use ACU and ORCA, but I'm not able to figure out the procedure.
Some help will be welcome.
Thank you.

You just add the drives physically, then open the ACU and select the array and you should see the option to expand the array. Then you select the logical disk and you should be able to migrate the RAID level. If you don't see those options check the battery is seen under the controller - more info.

Whare the options appear depends on which version of the ACU you have, they like to move things about with each revision.

The version of ACU is 8.70.9.0.
Two new disks are installed. In ACU I have selected the existing array and "expand array" option, added two disks and now the logical drive 1 (600GB RAID0) is in phase of transforming, while there on list is also unused space 600GB option.
If I have selected logical disk before and choose migrate I had only option to change strip size. RAID option was only RAID0 and greyed out. Batteries are visible under controller information.
Lets hope that I will not get "short track performance monster" with all 4 disks in RAID0.
I'll be back when the transformation is complete. Thanks for now.

No biggie if it does convert it into all 4 disks in RAID 0 since there's enough space left to change it to RAID 10 anyway.

After the transforming completed the migration logical drive option showed all possible RAID levels - also RAID 10.
Andyalder, thank you for your support.
