Hello to everybody!

I'm trying to install FreeBSD 10.3 (11.0 doesn't boot due to old EFI
buggy implementation) on a 2010 Intel Server Board S5400SF machine,
bearing an Intel Embedded Server RAID Technology II, with two arrays
of SATA hard disks.

When I boot the installation DVD of the 10.3-RELEASE, it sees the
single disks instead of the arrays. It destroys the arrays if I let it
write to the disks.

M$-Windows install straightforward without problems.

I have'nt tried Linux yet.

Thanks in advance to everybody for any help,
