drive xpert or raid0

hi
i have a p5q motherboard and 2 sata disks that i want to configure as raid0. the mb has an utility called drive xpert that works the same like raid0 or raid1, but it says that it can be used only for data and not for boot disk. i have read on forums that it works also as boot disk but i dont know how to do it, windows recognize the disks as 1 but with the double size! please if anyone know how to do it or if i cant do it, how can i configure a raid0?
thank you

Hello aris, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You should start by reading about RAID, its advantages and risks:
