Where'd my RAID1 volume go? (Gigabyte Z68MX, Marvell controller)

After failing (not enough space on SSD) in my attempt to install Windows Home Server 2011 (Intel2500K, 8GB, Vertex3 60GB, 2x2TB SATA III) I reverted back to Win7 (replacing Home Premium with Ultimate). Now I no longer have access to my Marvell Raid1 (2x2TB) volume. When I boot the machine the BIOS recognizes the hardware and if I enter BIOS I can see the RAID1 volume listed on the hard disk boot priority screen. Even so, when I go into explorer the RAIDONE volume is not available. Neither is it evident in disk manager. If I change the control mode from AHCI to IDE than two individual disks show up --unitialized -- in disk manager. I dont want to lose the 300GB of data I already have on the RAID volume. I wondering if there's a registry setting that may need some twiddling.

Any ideas how to resolve?

During installation, wasn't there a pfkey to hit to install Raid drivers ?

I don't recall a pfkey per se but I explicitly installed the RAID drivers after OS install using the latest Marvell drivers from the Gigabyte site.
