Raid 0 - can't see other drives
Setup see specs

I have raid 0 set up (windows 7)with two of the HDD's thu the on board controller. My third drive has the data that i would like on the raid 0 array. I need to set the SATA config as RAID to get the raid drives to work. but when i enter windows i can not see the third drive plugged in - the forth one that has the os that i am currently using is unplugged to minimize complications. During boot up at the raid screen it shows a green healthy array raid 0 array, and a red unusable damaged array?... which is that third drive. The motherboard sets that third drive in raid cuz i guess i set it in raid. but wouldn't it be logical that you cqan have a raid array and another nonRAIDed hard drive installed? when i set the sata config in ide mode the third and forth dirves can be seen...but i also unplug the raid drives.

I am wondering what i need to do in order to be able to see the otyher drives wille booted up in my raid 0 array.

Thanks Guys

pull out the disk that has data on it and only put both raid0 disk in then setup the raid0 in the controller then set you sata to boot from raid then start a fresh install from there. all you have to do is treat the 2 raid0 drives as 1. what os? vista or 7 cause if your using XP you''ll need the f6 drivers.
edit i am running 2 ssd in raid0 with a 250 hd for data right now.

I have the two raid drives working with windows 7 ultimate 64bit edition. I set the sata config to raid. Then i power off and replug in the cable for the data drive. boot up and i can not see the data drive.

put your drive in question on another sata controller. Almost all boards now a days has at least 2 x different sata controllers.
