    Greetings all,

    I'm going to make a long story short but just say that I had to reformat 2 internal 500GB hard drives in my laptop and managed to do a clean install on my Disk 0. These two disks used to be in RAID 0 but I had to switch to IDE in order to get Windows 7 reinstalled. However, now that I'm into the OS and changed Regedit to boot back into RAID 0, I'm getting an error upon booting moreover, I am not sure my computer is recognizing the second drive anymore... Can someone help me out and lead me in the right direction?

    This is what I see when I boot:

    The computer clearly recognizes the 2nd drive exists but when I go into My Computer and Computer Management, no 2nd drive is there! (E: is not Disk 0, I think it's just a partition I made when installing)

    Now when I boot into the storage config (ctrl+I), this is what I see and what my options are:

    Can someone please please please help me out?! Do I need to format the drive somehow in Windows before I try to tinker with the BIOS? Please help!

    Note: this is an MSI GT780DXR notebook. All drivers are reinstalled.

    Sidenote, why is my system booting straight into the PXE screen...?
