long story short, i used dban to write all zeros to my hard drives, now, while my recovery discs do work, they will only install win7 to one hard drive. now my comp takes twice as long to load anything. really want my raid back.

ive read that my chipset doesnt support hardware raid. if its software, what was the original program that lets me stripe drives?

By the chipset spec,this chipset (HM65) doesn't supportrd any raid feature..
so,this model notebook not have hardware raid(raid bios),and provide about create a software raid information for your reference

the reference you gave me will not work. you cant stripe a drive that you are currently using. im not buying a third drive...
the raid 0 setup is what the laptop came with, any info on how it was done originally? ive read somewhere that it isnt factory. im still working on this, and will post any solution i come up with. ive tried installing win 7 to a flash, but no go.

i no longer post here for support from asus, i have never gotten any. this is for anyone else with the same issue that wants to colaborate.
