I know the difference and this is not the issue.

The problem is that the Intel Toolbox suddenly sees a RAID configuration where one does not exist.
Whoa! Maybe it is
software! Maybe I should try re-installing the Intel Toolbox to see what happens?
Windows has been, and always shall be, a mystery to me. Perhaps that's the whole point?
