Hi everyone,

This is my first time doing this, I've got two ST31000528AS 1 Tb seagate plugged into my port 0 and port 1 in an Asus P6t motherboard.

In Bios when I enable Raid in the boot sequence it only shows the WD640GB blue as Raid and it says IDE ST31000528AS 1tb. So I have windows on The WD640Blue, when I choose that It wouldn't boot into windows.

I don't want to boot windows on ST31000528AS's right now, all I want to do is just be able to load application and games and movies on it.

I did manage to get Drive Expert to work which is part of the motherboards bios.

The problem is that Asus's drive expert did work but I don't see the performance that I thought I was going to get.

Here is a screen shot of HDTune doing the read benchmark.

What am I doing wrong? Can I make Raid 0 work with the intel controllers instead of Asus's drive expert?

Thank you to whomever helps me out :)

Well I figured it all out.

Here is the result with Raid 0.

I will post on how I did this later on as I'm tired. It might be helpful to someone out there.
