I'd suggest returning it since that's way overpriced for Silicon Image. You can grab one off NCIX for like $20. And especially if it isn't the problem...

When your Seagate is plugged into the motherboard, does it show up in the BIOS? If so, you definitely don't need that RAID card.

And in Windows 7, are you able to see the drive that Vista on it? If not, right click "Computer" in the start menu, "Manage", "Disk Management". See if the Vista drive is there, if so initialize it and assign it a drive letter.

Once you've done that, grab EasyBCD and use it to add Vista to the bootloader. Then you should be set to go.
