It is reasonable that Windows doesn't include every RAID controller. You didn't list specs.

Anyway, the black screen is progress.

Search the forum - there are a few posts with the same effect and solutions.

I will be back in an hour or so.

Finally got everything working!

One more question. My 1TB disk doesnt show up in the My Computer screen. It is connected properly. Any suggestions what it might be? When i go to Disk Management it says that i should choose a partitionstyle for the 1tb disk. It lets me choose either MBR (master boot record) or GPT (GUID-partitiontable)

PS. Check out this sweet HD-tune score =D
