SATA RAID Problems....

I have two SATA Hard Drives that I wish to use as a individual drives... Infprtunately they keep showing up as mirrored...

These are 160GB DiamondMax Plus 9 hard drives and for the life of me I cannot get the sparte drive to work in in the raid controller options. It says:

 Raid1 Set only. Press any Key to return.

Any Ideas?

During the boot process when the drives show up, usually hitting TAB will bring up the RAID Controller interface.  Select to Delete the Array and that should do it.  I have this same controller on a couple of ASUS boards I own.
What type of SATA controller are you using?

Silicon Image SATARaid Sil3114 controller.
Is this a PCI card or integrated in the motherboard and does the motherboard have it's own SATA controller (ICH5).
Is this an Intel Chipset MB? I do know the the built in SATA controller for the Intel chipset (ICH5) you can set up as individual drives.
