Thanks for your fast reply.
I've tried two options available (ESRT2, RST) with different Control key to no avail.
I'm using 4 enterprise sata harddrive. Which option do you suggest me to go with ?
The control R should kick in right after the system bios, right ?

There is no need to add a RAID controller to the system in order to configure a RAID 10. I noticed you mentioned you already enabled RAID Mode in the BIOS. Keep in mind the following.
- 2 White SATA ports – 4 Black SATA ports are managed under the option that says AHCI Capable Controller. See Attachment
- 8 Blue SATA/SAS ports are managed under SAS/SATA Capable Controller. See Attachment
Additionally, make sure you disable the Quiet Boot option under the Main tab in BIOS.
If you choose ESRT2; then, you should get a CTRL+E prompt. If you choose RSTe, you should get a CTRL+I option rather.
We don’t typically have a preference between one RAID option over the other one but most customers have used the ESRT2 option in the past.
Here is an Interactive Tutorial for this RAID controller.

Once quiet boot is disable, all menu are now available for the raid configuration. I'll know this for next time !
I selected ESRT2 and tried windows server installation and asking for drivers. I'll take a look at download section on your website.
Thanks alot for your help!
