Windows 7: RAID 1 not recognized in OS after BIOS update

RAID 1 not recognized in OS after BIOS update

Hi,
First off I am running Win 7 on a primary SSD, and have 2 1TB HDD in RAID 1 for storage. I have been running this setup fine for a while now.
I recently updated my BIOS (P8P67) using the EZ Flash utility from USB per the following steps:
-Restore defaults
-Flash new BIOS
-Restore defaults
-Reset SATA mode to RAID

Everything went fine, and I verified that my BIOS was seeing the 2 HDD as 1 volume. The Intel RAID controller shows the mirrored volume and 2 drives on bootup, all fine. However, when I get into windows, the RAID volume is not listed in the Intel RST software, device manager or disk management.

I got confusion.

Fixed.

After going online to Intel and checking that I had the latest drivers for the SATA controller, I decided to check the ASUS website. I downloaded and installed the older driver they had listed there, and during installation it picked up the volume and now all is good. I doubt it had anything to do with the driver version though. I think if I had tried just reinstalling the newest ones the same thing would have happened. Anyone know why I had to reinstall in order for the volume to be picked up?

I still have a fairly severe case of confusion...

HD Not recognized in Windows 7 but in BIOS
I recently installed Windows 7 onto my computer and one of the hard drives is not displayed in Windows. It is listed in the boot sequence and in BIOS. Does anyone have an idea as to why it would be in the BIOS but not available through Windows 7? Thanks.
