Since it's a OS drive, you will not want to do software raid with it. You will not be able to start up Windows 7 afterwards if you do.

You will need to use hardware RAID instead by either using a motherboard that supports it, or installing a RAID controller card to use.

 

Once you install Windows 7, then you can perform a software Raid.
