The Dell R900 is a quad-socket RAM and CPU-optimized server platform. The internal disk place is limited because it's intended to be connected to some form of shared-storage. PCI-X is defunct.

I recently replaced a drive in my PE1950 with PERC 5/i. My drives weren't configured as a RAID array, but I still had to go into the PERC management interface and create a new "Virtual Disk" to get it to use the drive.

The MD3220i requires disks with dell firmware, so yes you can move the drives from your servers and vice versa, but not other makes of drive.

Is it a GPT partition table? If so, you need a bios_grub aka "Reserved BIOS boot area" partition (not the same as /boot) or things don't work right, especially with software raid. Also with grub and Linux softraid, your /boot should be raid1, and ideally not metadata 1.2.
