We recently picked up a HP Envy with dual 500GB hard drives.  The intent was to raid or mirror them.  HP says we need a h/w raid controller (not included in config) or need to do it via Windows 7 Pro...  Any hints on this?   HP now says the 2'nd drive is merely for extended storage vs raid or mirroring...

We have tried a number of things but no success...
