if your Raptor is your boot drive then the drivers would have to be installed when you install windows. no, RAID 0 can't be installed on a drive that already has data on it without losing it because if you understand how a "striped pair" works you'll know that the data already on yor drive would have to have been split onto the second drive too. RAID 1 could be done without issue though i think you won't find that helpful. my suggestion is you just backup your data and then create the array, then return your data.
