  1. Install them as normal HDD's. Go to Windows, Start Menu and type "create partitions" the option "Create and Format Hard disk partitions" and take it from there....
  2. More info needed:

    2 SSDs? Which ones?

    Fresh install, or just addding?

    Did you set them up in RAID?

    Do you see them in BIOS, not Explore? Use Disk Management.

    BTW: Games will not play faster from an SSD, only load faster. You should install your OS to the SSD(s), and your games, too.

  5. What is your motherboard?

    If you want to RAID them, your mobo needs to have the SATA ports set to RAID, and have the OS drivers to handle it.

    Are you doing a fresh install? Windows 7 handles just about every Intel chipset out there, and will recongnize a new RAID array on install. If you have a NVidia chipset, you'll need the RAID driver for it, to do a third party (F6) set up during install.
