What kind of card is it?

Using 3ware in the start up bios the raid 10 can be split so that there 
is say 10-20G for boot/root disk.
then set up the 2-nd disk for pve-storage . Use LVM so that snapshot 
backups work. Just save free space on the LVM for snapshot backup.

I used to do the above, but now use the defaults as there is less to 
deal with. The extra root space can be used for pve storage . In pve 
storage use a directory like /bkup or /pve-tmp and store iso , backups 
or whatever you want.
