Turn on your computer and press to enter BIOS Setup during the POST (Power-On Self-Test). To create RAID, set PCH SATA Control Mode under the Integrated Peripherals menu to RAID(XHD) (Figure 1)
(IDE by default). If you do not want to create RAID, set this item to IDE or AHCI.
After the POST memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins, look for a message which says "Press to enter Configuration Utility" (Figure 2). Press + to enter the RAID Configuration Utility.
After you press + , the MAIN MENU screen will appear (Figure 3).
Create RAID Volume
If you want to create a RAID array, select Create RAID Volume in MAIN MENU and press .
After entering the CREATE VOLUME MENU screen, enter a volume name with 1~16 letters (letters cannot be special characters) under the Name item and press . Then, select a RAID level (Figure 4). RAID levels supported include RAID 0, RAID 1, Recovery, RAID 10, and RAID 5 (the selections available depend on the number of the hard drives being installed). Press to proceed.
Under Disks item, select the hard drives to be included in the RAID array. If only two hard drives are installed, they will be automatically assigned to the array. Set the stripe block size (Figure 5) if necessary. The stripe block size can be set from 4 KB to 128 KB. Once you have selected the stripe block size, press .
Enter the array capacity and press . Finally press on the Create Volume item to begin creating the RAID array. When prompted to confirm whether to create this volume, press to confirm or to cancel (Figure 6).
If you did it right, it should show up like this

I also do not know anything about the STRIPE block size to use, so you may want to research that
