Unsure if Raid is setup or working

I came into contact with a supermicro server running windows server 2008 standard. It has 4 hard drives. Only 1 hard drive shows up in disk management as drive C. I believe that there may hardware raid but I am unsure. How do I go about checking to see if there is a functioning raid?

Supermicro is pretty good about having documentaton online.  (www.supermicro.com)
It would help to know the model of the server or the motherboard being used.
During boot there should be a prompt for hitting an F key to enter the RAID configuration utility.

For each motherboard on the supermico web site there are also OS utilities to download and install on the OS so you can monitor the Array while the system is in use.
