I am trying to add a second disk array on an Engineering workstation that has an onboard Nvidia nForce4 raid controller.  Array 0 is 2 drives mirrored and I want to add a second array and mirror 2 more drives.  When i boot up the 2 new drives are posting but when i go into the raid utility the "new array" option is grayed out.  Any ideas?

Ok I got past the original issue.  I went into the bios and enabled the SATA ports under the Raid config.  I created the 2nd array and made it my boot partition.  I am about to install Windows 7 on the array but am deathly afraid I am going to screw up the original partition.  If i power the unit down and unplug the SATA drives that contain data will that affect the RAID?
