I have just built my first pc and have installed 4 1tb hard disks that I wish to configure in RAID 5. I configured the BIOS for RAID 5 for these 4 disks and I copied the SATA drivers across from the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 Motherboard disk so that I could install them during the Windows 7 installation. The drivers were present om the list and I selected and installed them, completing the OS installtion.
The problem is that the does not appear in windows explorer and when I look in disk management the RAID drive appears as 2 units under Disk 0 split into 2.0tb and roughly .75tb. Both unallocated.
So my questions are:
1 Why isn't the full RAID volume of 4tb shown in explorer?
2. What do I need to do to set the RAID up properly?
Hope you can help
