The box come with a Raid controller built on the motherboard, however I cannot figure out how to configure it for Raid 1.

1) I have two 40 gig IDE drives that are working fine.   There are two controllers in the box.  Should both of these drives be on the same controller to support Raid 1?  Or can I have on each controller to improve redunancy?

2) When I configure it, it seems to be OK, but when I install windows 2003 it sees the second drive but as a seperate drive vs. a Raid 1 array?

Help?

Anyway instructions for the proper way to set this up would be great. thanks

CTCknows,
You have to reconfigure everything from scratch.  You have to have both hard drives on the same controller.  In HP's only one of the controllers is the Raid controller as long as you selected that option upon ordering.  Since you didn't specify, I don't know if your utilizing SATA or SCSI drives.  

The first cd that you need to run in the HP SmartStart CD.  It has everything from start to finishing to configuring your system properly.  The first thing that it is going to do is select your bootup controller and if you have an array controller it will select that one.  Following step is to build the array.  The wizard walks you through all of this step by step but you have to know what to look for.  Next step will ask you to select your operating system that you will install.  Final step will ask you to enter your serial key and the CD.

Thank you,
