I did not really understand your comments, but during boot, you should see some type of opRom that need an key to enter. Once you are in the ROM, you can set up your RAID and continue the Install.

If ctl i means Ctrl+I, maybe use that, although I do not remember that being the access key sequence.

Once you set your bios to raid mode you will see that prompt. When you see it press control+I. It will take you to a raid menu where you can select which disks and the stripe size. Be aware whichever disks you choose, you will lose all data on them. Set up the array and reinstall windows if the volume will be your boot drive. Every time you boot you will see that message about control+I. That give you the option to go back in and change the array or to break it if you want.
