Question Ubuntu 20.04 Install on its own volume in a RAID 10 array

Not that the knowledge isn't out there but I have been unable to find good directions on how to install Ubuntu (and other distros) on a separate RAID volume on my machine. So I'm asking today for help.

I want to install Ubuntu on its own volume (not partition) on a 2tb RAID 10 array. My motherboard is an ASUS KGPE-D16 (two AMD 6328 Opeterons), 56G memory with a non UEFI American Megatrend BIOS. My machine has an ARECA 1883xi SAS/RAID host card installed. I want to install Ubuntu on its own separate 250g volume in a 2tb RAID 10 array. I have four Windows OSs on this machine as follows: XPx32 on a Crucial SSD 275g disk, Win10 on a Kinsington 500g disk and four volumes in three separate RAID arrays as follows: Win 7x64 and Win 10 in two separate 500g volumes on the 2tb RAID 10 array. A 1.3tb data volume on a RAID 5 array and a 6tb video volume in a RAID 0 array. All disks connected to the ARECA are are SSD.

I plan to burn the Ubuntu 20.04 distro onto a disk and install from there to the RAID 10 array (1tb free space) since the Vantec UGT-PC345 USB 3.0 card doesn't have drivers for Linux. My plan is to create a 250g Ubuntu volume in the ARECA BIOS (as I did with the other volumes, no running OS) and do a low level format there. The boot loader I'm using is Easy BCD that resides in Win7.

Which of the 3 options should I choose when the Ubuntu install asks?
