whoops i was wrong:  According to the linked document:

      Unsupported Drives

Drives that are not certified by Dell are reported in the *BIOS 
Configuration Utility*, also known as <Ctrl><C>.

To view unsupported drives:

   1. In the *BIOS Configuration Utility*, navigate to the *SAS
      Topology* screen.

   2. Select the unsupported drive and press <Alt><D> to view the
      *Device Properties *screen.

The drive is marked as *Uncertified* in the *Device Properties *screen.

Drives that are not certified by Dell are not blocked and you can use 
them at your own risk.
