Can't reinstall Vista

I had one drive of a RAID 0 array die on me. My plain is to reinstall Vista on the surviving drive. When I get to the point where I choose which drive to install on, my only choice is a recently installed 2TB hard drive that contains all of my backups, which I obviously need. The drive does show up in BIOS and in diskpart, just not in the Vista install program.

  1. Did you break the RAID configuration so it sees the drive normally?
  2. I deleted the array. Is there anything else I need to do? I also changed the SATA port that I plugged it into - not sure if that matters. I plugged it into the one next to the functioning 2TB drive.
  3. As long as the RAID controller does not see the drive as being part of a RAID set, Windows should see that single drive. Check in the RAID settings to make sure the drive is not seen as part of the array.
