Configure RAID 1 on B120i and Debian Installation

Hello,
I have DL320e server
I configured RAID1 on B120i, and try install Debian 9x, 64 bit. But got error Debian can't see RAID.
If you have similar problems and solved it, tell me how.
I tried with B120i RAID1, and with Software raid also not worked.

    And how solve this problem? I tried software raid also not worked. On grub installation step it give me error.

  • You can't install GRUB to the raid directly with a software RAID. Make a partition (sdX1) of type ext3, ~250MB, not mounted, on the members of your RAID, and install grub to sda1, then manually install to the other partitions.

    If you want to go the hardware RAID route, you could add HP drivers to the distribution.

    I would just do software RAID or ZFS though.
