when you create your raid array it will delete everthing off your other HD. You will have to start from scratch

yeah, when you boot your comp, right afer the POST screen you will enter the matrix storage program, you have to hit a key, cant remember what it is off hand ( like shift I or Ctr I) and then it will let you set up your raid array. Keep the strip size at the default size, which is the highest size available, then click ok. You dont need to format your raptor btw, when you create the raid array it will do it for you automatically. Then when you install windows it will show you raid array as whatever name you gave it ( i called it RAID array, very creative i know) and your done.
