This is good, but if you need to install OS in RAID partition.

Go to Bios (F2) change to legacy mode and press ctrl+M

Accessing the Marvell BIOS Utility under legacy boot mode

The UEFI boot mode is the server default boot mode. To switch to legacy boot mode, see Selecting the

boot mode on page 64.

Procedure

1. Reboot the server.

2. On the POST drive information screen, press Ctrl+M.

@schoondoggy, is there any possibility to setup a RAID 5 or 6 with the Marvell controller?
The Marvell controller only supports RAID 0-1-10. For RAID 5 or 6 you would need to add a RAID card or use software RAID.

Is there any recommended model?

I've read about the HPE SmartArray E208i-p SR but in the datasheet i can't find RAID 6 level.

the E2018i is the recommended model from HPE, but it does not appear to support RAID6. I believe a P420 does support RAID6. If you search the threads I think some have tested Adaptec and I have tested LSI. I think both supported RAID6.
