Ok, I kinda forgot everything I've done few months ago. So I need someone to help me out here =/

I'm trying to have this old setup:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
-Mirroring-

Maxtor 6Y200M0 Capacity: 189.92GB Channel: Primary Device: Master
Maxtor 6Y200M0 Capacity: 189.92GB Channel: Secondary Device: Master

-Stripping-

WDC WD360GD-00FNA0 Capacity: 34.48GB Channel: Primary Device: Master
WDC WD360GD-00FNA0 Capacity: 34.48GB Channel: Secondary Device: Master

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just recently formatted. Seems like when I got into the partition menu, I notice the drives were seperated. Anyway.. I have 2x200GB maxtors, and 2x35GB raptors. I wanted to have the maxtors mirrored, and the raptors combined. So that way I can see two drives during partition.

My problem is, where the heck do I figure them. I was trying to figure what I've done in the past. I have the SATA raid driver disk, which is the solution. I just don't know how I can access to it and then make these following changes I mentioned above.

This is what I've done and got stuck.. I have the OS disk loaded as well as the SATA raid driver disk, then F6 for raid config. There, I'm stuck with these two options repeadly back and forth trying to gain access to config from the disk. I'm not sure if there's a step before that or whatever. Anyway.. this is my second time so it might have been a little different.

thanks

You make changes to the RAID settings just after the POST screen normally. My onboard ViA 8237 controller tells me to press TAB to enter RAID configuration. My old RAID card told me to press F3.
If it's an onboard controller, you may need to enable SATA RAID in the BIOS.
The problem is that when you change the settings, you blank the drives involved.
