I figured you'd be asking sooner than later... Here is a screen shot of what I see at start up

The stripe, from my understanding, is controlled by the MB and then RAID1 is controlled by a controller that I installed. This is the RAID that I'm having problems with

F: is the actual DVD drive and G: is an mountable virtual disc (CloneDrive)

So that's where you would go to manage your RAID (using the hotkeys displayed).

Two 2 TB disks should allow for a 2 TB RAID1. Why does it show in that bootscreen as 1 TB?

And what would A: be?

Correct, C: is RAID0 and running on NVIDIA controller, striped

H:\ is the RAID1 and running on the other controller and I have to set the drive letter manually at start up

So have you gone into the management utility for the RAID controller that manages the H: drive? Hardware/firmware controllers can limit how Windows sees the actual devices. Was there ever a time in which the drive letter stuck successfully across boots?

I will reboot now and check it out

I don't recall it ever showing up since the new controller... I've been dealing with this for a while. I'll take some screen shots of the menus
