it might be raid issues but you dont need to raid those drives. the sataIII port will bottleneck the drives so you're really not gaining anything. so id suggest reinstalling on just one drive.

would installing on one drive increase speed?

like i said before it could be raid issues. has it always been this slow? are you connected to a sata III port? do you have the raid drivers installed?
