Win7 and soft raid5?!
Got a trio of disks and set em up in the bios, got my Driver on the usb and nothin'.

Searching the net it seems win7 has no support for software raid 5, i never knew(would have made different choices).

So now what? 3 x 1.5Tb drives and nothing to do with em.

Oh i know i have a few options:

Get a controller card
Run linux
go with 3 single drives
Raid 1 over 2 disks and a spare
wait for hacks

Anyone got any Ideas?

this is why you do research before purchasing products!

I don't think RAID 5 has been supported (officially) in any recent home user edition of windows.. ever?

just RAID 0 it all :P

I've heard it can be done with 3rd party hardware options, but have never tried.
