You have to turn your PC on.

To be safe, unplug the two raid 0 hard drives and install your os on the only seen drive.

After you are done with that plug in the other two and configure them either in the raid controller settings or the OS.

Don't confuse the install. Remember to set which drive is for boot when you do create the RAID array.
Can I just ask why the RAID 0?
