Dell Precision Tower 5820

When this workstation was order it was configured with no redundancy. I am tasked with adding a mirrored raid array. I was hoping to just get a HighPoint PCIE NVME Raid card with 1TB NVME drives and configure that to be my OS drive, but I thought I better make sure I can configure the workstation to boot from that Highpoint PCIe card. I looked and could not find any definitive answer that it is. It looks like the chipset is the C422 if that helps. I am pretty sure it is, but I am not sure if this Dell workstation can be configured for this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

According to High Point, yes if it's the SSD7000 or SSD7500 series.  Are Dell Precision 5820 workstations compatible with SSD7000/SSD7500 Series NVMe RAID Controllers?

Broadcom MegaRAID SAS 9440-8i and 9460-16i are tested and validated RAID controllers for Precision 5820.

For low cost setup, use the integrated Intel RAID controller with SATA SSD for RAID 1 OS.
