Could you provide your hardware specs and OS?

We would be able to help identify your configuration with those details.

i have a Dell Power Edge R710 Windows Server 2008 Standard 64-Bit system. I noticed under Server Manager under Disk Management it tells me I have Basic Disks but don't know if this is set up as a RAID configuration or not.

An easy way is to look at disk administrator and see make/model of drives.   If you have a hardware RAID controller card, then make/model of the disk drives will rarely be Seagate, or WD, they will typically be a manufacturer of a controller.

But really no substitute other than to physically examine.  You may have a RAID controller, but it it could be turned off or disabled.

I think I found the solution in Device Manager. It is showing Dell PERC 6/i Integrated RAID Controller. I should have looked there just overlooked that part.

I was commenting on the fact I looked into the device manager and found out that this is a RAID configuration.
