Hi, i have a western digital raptor 36G and two Seagate 120g SATA. My motherboard is AOpen AX4C MAX    
http://english.aopen.com.tw/products/mb/AX4CMax.htm

It has two pair of SATA connector, one is controled by ICH5R(raid 0) the other is by promise(raid 0,1,0+1)
I just want to use the raptor as the master drive and two seagate as a raid. But the the system can't recognize all of them  at one time. I have tried both controllers for the raid drives.

and in windows hardware device it says the raid controller software is not installed. What do i have to install in windows for raid?

Thank you!!

What motherboad are you using?
It could be that you need to install the RAID drivers that come with the motherboard.  Via chipset motherboards (eg ASUS) usually come with a 'Via 4-in-1' drivers CD, which may include a RAID driver for windows.
If you don't have such a CD, try this link - http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=2
Best of luck.

Apologies for my first post - I should read more thoroughly.
Try getting the Aopen drivers from this link:
