    Hi, I've built my new Windows 7 system and set up two drives using an on-board controller - a RAID1 (2 DISK with OS on it) and a RAID 10 (4 DISK). I downloaded the Intel Rapid application and initialised both disks with it, 11 hours later, initialised and all fine. However when I go into Windows Disk Management it says the RAID 10 is not initialised? Does that mean I now need to initialise it again in here too and will it conflict in any way with the Intel Rapid application?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks :)

    Probably just means the disks are empty.

    Initialise them to MBR or GPT and start making partitions to your hearts content :)
