I just completed my first build. I installed an ocz vertex 3 120gb for a boot drive and was going to do 2x 1tb WD black on raid0 but can not get windows to recognize it. The drives are seen in the bios and I have already made the ssd the boot drive. I have an asus p8p67 deluxe (rev3) mb. Any suggestions please?

Windows needs the RAID driver to see the RAID0 array

Agree with Jim_L9. You will require drivers that are most likely in a floppy disk.

You need to hit F2 when you boot from disk.

I believe it's probably the "DEL" key for most desktops and F2 for laptops but I could be wrong.

Note that many motherboards have multiple RAID chips installed. The Intel solution might be the best one.
