RAID Configuration Issues (Split into two partitions, trying to get one)

Hey guys,

I just got a RAID 5 system. It looks like it's split up into two partitions (one has 2TB as a new volume, the other is ~6TB as unallocated). I'm trying to get a large 8TB partition, but I can't seem to extend the first volume or merge/combine them.

I can't even create a simple volume from the larger unallocated space.

Here's an image of the situation:

Any solutions? Thanks in advance!

    You use the MBR partition, convert it back to GPT, then you will have ONE volume
