I'm trying to set up a pair of disks in RAID (I'm debating 0 or 1) on my computer. I'm running Vista (32 bit) with a core 2 duo CPU (2.6) and an ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard. As best I can tell the board is RAID compatable. The drives are matching 160 gb but I had already formatted them with the WD software.
I have everything plugged in and I think I'm good as far a power, SATA connectors, etc. In my BIOS I've enabled RAID and my 3 drives are recognized as 2 - my C: is the SATA 320 GB drive and my D: is SATA0 Raid. During boot, it says "Healthy Stripe 0) or something like that.
However, when I boot Vista, I show my C: drive but for D: it only recognizes a single 160 GB drive (and I'm pretty shure it should recognize closer to 320GB).
If I need to go through a set-up proceedure in Vista, I don't know where it is or what to do, so any and all assistance is appreciated (and you'll likely need to be specific as I'm very much an amateur).
