Did you receive a driver disc with your MB? That should include the RAID drivers you need. When you install Windows for the first time it will say something like "press F7 or F8" or something" to install 3rd party SATA drivers.
Also, you need to make sure that SATA and RAID are both enabled in your bios.

This manual from DFI's website should help you regarding the Nvida RAID drivers:

It's F6, and you have to immediately start pressing it when the blue screen comes up when after you boot from the Windows CD.

Just as a note, DFI includes a small seperate sheet with directions for configuring a RAID array. There really isn't any need to explain it here.
