While this motherboard can support RAID 5 and 10, only RAID 0
and RAID 1 modes are supported.

My guess, is the computer case holds two hard drives. It would
be pretty hard to do RAID5 or RAID10, unless the computer case
had room to store the extra drive(s). So I think they're referring
to how much room the computer case has to hold the necessary
hard drives.

Correct! I had opened the case and saw only 2 bays for 3.5" hard disks.

How would you have written it? :)

Why not just add *by this case* at the end

"Your computer holds a maximum of two 3.5" hard drives. Due to this
physical limitation, RAID options with the drives are limited to
RAID0 or RAID1. If you wish to use the motherboard supported
RAID5 or RAID10 capability, storage adapters are available to
fit 2.5" hard drives in 3.5" bays, and by that means, the necessary
total three or four drives can be fitted. This may require additional
power adapter cables.

This Is It! I wonder whether HP management cares about written manuals... :)

RAID 0 can use 3 drives... :)
