PERC H310 - no volumes visible in PM installer

Hi there.
Quick question: I bough a "cheapo" 2nd hand ~20$ SAS/SATA controller (basically for practice/test purpose).
Controller has default Dell Perc(non hba moded) BIOS.
Now, I made a RAID1 VD using 2x500GB SATA drives. Volume is set as bootable etc.
Thing is PM installer doesn't show the raid1 drive at all.
Is Perc H310 (LSISAS2008) natively supported with PM installed? I'm willing to flash it to HBA mode (ZFS) but for now I want to stick with default BIOS setup for some benchmarks/performance tests.

With some software/integrated RAID controllers PM installer showed no VD but physical disks instead but with this one it shows none (just an usb installer stick).
