I installed the card and attached the drives to the card. I set the jumpers on the card to internal drives only. I then proceeded to boot Vista, installed on the first NFTS formatted drive, which after a quick driver installation read the both drives no problem.
So, with everything backed up, I shut down the computer and pressed F4 to load up my BIOS for the RAID card at the BIOS screen. At this screen I'm only shown one 465GB drive. I enter the setup page and I'm given these different options such as low level format, set up RAID, Delete RAID Arrays, rebuild Array and Concatenation. I chose Set Up RAID 0 (striped) and I get an error message telling me "not enough free single discs to create raid setup".
Thinking this has to do with formatting, I loaded up Vista and deleted the partition info off of my 2nd drive--it was NFTS also. Now it has no formatting on it. So basically, I've got two hard drives now, that are being read by and usable under Windows, one with Windows, formatted with NTFS, and the other one with nothing. But my RAID Bios is telling me that its only reading one drive. I searched by motherboard BIOS and found that it's also only reading one drive, although I see that the RAID controller is listed under boot devices. I changed it to boot first, then loaded up my RAID Bios once more, only to have it still tell me that there are not enough single discs to create a RAID array.
This is driving me nuts. Do any of you have any idea as to how I might do this or what I need to do?
