Yeah, your info is all over the place.  HP makes the "DL380G5", not Dell; Dell has an R720XD, not R7200XD.  Assuming you are actually talking about a Dell PowerEdge R720XD and are using an H710 controller, you need to boot to the CTRL-R utility during POST to configure RAID.  Configure the RAID 1, then install your OS, then configure the other arrays (assuming you want the OS on the RAID 1).

In CTRL-R, highlight the controller (top-left) on the VD MGMT screen, select the disks you want in that particular RAID array (VD), give it a name if you want, leave the other options as default (unless you understand the implications of changing them), then check the Advanced and Initialize boxes, then OK.

Sorry, I'm using Dell R720XD.

Inside the server, does the server have only a physical RAID Controller to control all disks slot ? Do I need to consider which set of disks are managed by which physical controller (or cable) ? It would be great if each set of RAID is managed by a individual physical controller (cable).
