Well dell has big ones... They want to charge me $250 to tell me what I need to change in the bios to enable the intel ich10r sata to be able to do raid.  The machine cost under $600...

Currently the bios is set fo aich.  When I start the machine and press CTRL+I it does not going into sata configuration.  I have 2 identical drives.

What do I need to do to get this machine to do RAID 1 ?

Thanks
