Need help with raid setup

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok, so here is my situation.

I have an OCZ vertex2 ssd and two 1tb spinpoint F3's.

I setup raid in bios and setup the array. Then I disconnected all drives except for the SSD and installed Win7 pro64 on the ssd (I also loaded the Intel RST drivers). So after installation is complete I shut down and connect the raid hdds and boot up into windows. I go to disk management and I see this:

Attachment 202563

It seems like the array is showing properly at 1863GB

So I need to format the raid drive and when I right click I see this:

Attachment 202564

Now, being that this is my first time doing a RAID setup, I assume I would need to select NEW STRIPED VOLUME.

After clicking on that option I get this screen:

Attachment 202565

As you can see, the Next button is not available.

So does that mean that I just need to pick New Simple Volume instead?

Thanks in advance!!!
