PERC H330 unsupported drives.

Purchased a Dell T330 Server with PERC H330 RAID Controller (Firmware 25.4.1.0004) w/ 300GB RAID1 Dell SAS drive (ST300MM0008). I attempted to add another RAID1 using two Seagate Constellation (ES.3 ST2000NM0023 2TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise) Internal Hard Drives. I can see the new drives under DISKS, but the STATE of the new drives is UNSUPORTED and I cannot add as 2nd RAID1

According to Dell Support, I should be able to add the uncertified drives and configure the 2nd RAID1 regardless. The Virtual Disk Wizard does not see available space to create a RAID1. 1 have spent 1 week with their support team and escalation engineers never call back. I have been using uncertified drives for years now with no problem on other Dell Servers.

Any suggestions?
