I am about to reformat my hard drive, long story as to why, but I am starting from scratch. I know how to install windows, drivers etc. but one thing I am not sure about is configuring the RAID, as I wasn't the one who did it when we installed everything. I am assunming that when I reformat the RAID will need to be reconfigured? I have RAID 5 with three hard drives, each 500 GB. I have a program called Intel Rapid Storage Technology that "manages" the hard drives,but if I am correct I have to set up RAID before installing windows. Can anyone point me to a how-to page or explain how to configure the RAID the same way I currently have it?

If it helps this is a homebuilt comp, i7 930 2.8 ghz, 6 GB RAM, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, Gigabyte motherboard...

Thank you so much for any help.
