[Linux-PowerEdge] Degradated array configuration

I'm currently learning how to use the BIOS config utility to manage the
PERC H200 RAID controller on a Dell PowerEdge R310.
Actyally the server has 3 disks:
Slot 1 1 TB Disk
Slot 2 1 TB Disk
Slot 3 2 TB Disk
I already configured disks in slot 1 and 2 as RAID 1. Now I want to
configure the disk in slot 3 as RAID 1 too, but degradeted, because I
don't have yet another disk to put in slot 4. The problem is that the
BIOS utility doesn't allow me to configure RAID 1 using the disk in slot
3 because I need another disk in slot 4.
I want to do this because when I will have the system fully configured
and running and then insert another disk in hot the RAID will rearm
If I can't do this, when I insert a new disk in slot 4 I will need to
reboot the system, enter the BIOS config utility and then configure the
RAID 1, selecting disk in slot 3 as master.
So, is posible to configure a degradated RAID 1 in the BIOS config utility?
Thanks and best regards.
