i found two western digital 500gb hdds so i decided to try raid 0 with them on a p5q pro mobo
i followed the directions which told me to go to storage configuration and change the hdd from ide to raid, then restart and press ctrl-I to enter the menu, but when i restart, there is never a prompt to press ctrl-I, and even just continuously pressing it does not work.
sorry this is my first time with anything related to raids and any help would be greately appreciated

Check your manual for the correct key combination.

Also, you did connect the drives to the red SATA connectors on your motherboard right? The other 2 with white and orange colours are from a different controller and should not be used for RAID.
