RAID 5 on S5000PAL server

I'm trying to run RAID 5 on a S5000PAL SR2500ALLX server with a FALSASMP midplane and SATA hard drives. I installed an AXXRAK5SW RAID activation key but it appears that it is only for the SATA RAID on the motherboard and doesn't work with the midplane.

Currently when it boots, the hard drives are detected only by the integrated SAS controller in the midplane. Is there any way to configure RAID to work with the key I already purchased or do I have to buy another RAID key/DIMM for the midplane?

According to http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5000pal/sb/CS-022659.htm Intel® Server Board S5000PAL - Spares and Configuration Guide , the FALSASMP needs AXXRAK18E and AXXMINIDIMM. The AXXRAKSW5 is only for the SR1500 chassis, not the SR2500 chassis.
