How to turn RAID on.

Hi, I have recently been trying to turn RAID on (Yes i already know it is slower blah blah blah). I have searched everywhere and i don't know how to get it in the BIOS menu. Here are my PC Specs.
Thanks in advanced.

  1. As soon as you turn your computer on tap F1 imeadiately (several times).

    Generally the button you push to get into the BIOS is different on MOST computers. I suggest F1 to you because that is what saw Award uses in their BIOSs.

    If that is not working look for something on the screen imeadately when you power up it should say "Setup = F10" for example.

    FYI,
    I don't think your motherboard even supports RAID.
  2. It's an HP system, F10 gets you into the BIOS... But the motherboard doesn't support RAID...

    If your MOBO doesn't support software RAID, then you'll need to purchase a third party RAID card.

    Is there any specific thing i need to look out for when buying the card?

    The first thing you need to do is learn what RAID is, and how it works. After that, you can worry about the rest.
