If you're only a few hours into this... start over, live, learn, drink green tea.

I agree, however this may be something that I can learn from.

The lesson is that you need to create your RAID before installing your OS.

Yes,  (although as I mentioned, I like to do it outside of Windows... but you can have Windows create the RAID as well).

Definitely make sure you have a complete backup before attempting this.
