Software RAID 5 Support Window 7 X64 Pro

Does Windows 7 x64 Pro support RAID 5 in disk management? It shows up as an option but it always grayed out.

I have (4) 500GB drives and would really like to use RAID 5 on the 3 that aren't boot drives without all of the BS of using my MoBo controllers and finding the right drivers.

This is still not supported. You can check with the compatibility center for other disk management options:
