Windows 7: Format Hard disk Array

Format Hard disk Array

Hello all,

I am trying to format a 320 GB disk drive as single storage that was once used on a motherboard as a Raid 0 array. I can format the disk drive as NTFS via a USB cable, but when I try and connect the drive internally on the motherboard, the computer does not see it. When I go to disk managment to try and initialize hhe drive, it list the drive as a array and gives me an error. I have tried this a couple times and am at a loss as to hoe to get rid of the "Array" name disk managment says it is.

Any help appreciated in advance,

If you can't delete the existing "partition" to blank the drive using Windows' built-in program, then download Partition Wizard. It's free and will easily do the job for you.
