Hello, I have configured a RAID-5 array on my GA-P35C-DS3R using the onboard Intel ICH9R chipset.
The volume is active has been checked several times by the Intel Matrix Storage Console, but it will not show up in Windows - neither in My computer or using the Disk Management Snap-in.
I am using the latest driver from Gigabyte.

XP probably needs the RAID driver that you should have loaded using the F6 key when you installed the OS.
I have installed the raid driver afterwords and the Intel Matrix software (windows version) works as expected. The problem seems to be that the disk created using the intel matrix software is not presented to windows.
