I just found this buried in the manual. It seems you can use the RAID firmware!

Creating a JBOD Configuration
The BIOS RAID utility does not report non-RAID drives to the system BIOS. If a non-RAID boot drive or data drive is desired, create a JBOD so the BIOS RAID utility will report the drive to the system BIOS.
1. Select 'Create RAID set' from the Main Menu section of the RAID Configuration Utility screen.
2. Select 'JBOD' and press Enter.
3. Select 'JBOD drive' from the Physical Drive list and press Enter.
4. Select the size of the JBOD drive with the ↑ and ↓ keys and press Enter.
5. When the 'Are You Sure?' confirmation prompt appears, respond 'Y' to complete the JBOD configuration.

The hard disk should now be listed in the BIOS menu as a 'JBOD' device.
Obvious, isn't it! To add a non-RAID single disk, you use the Create RAID set option!!!
