I want to know if it is possible, and in such case how to implement a nested RAID array in a Windows 7 Pro computer.

This computer currently already has phisically 4 hard disks (4 GB each), and two of them have been configured as RAID 0

The idea would be to have two RAID 0 arrays at the bottom level, and 1 RAID 1 above them

Windows 7 Software RAID cannot do this.  You have to do it at least in part through a hardware RAID controller.

And anyway, thats the wrong way round! (Mirrored Stripes, usually mean that losing a disk, means losing everything).

You need the lower levels to be Mirrors (RAID-1) which are then Striped (RAID-0), the results is known as RAID10 although you might see various descriptions of the ambiguous terms RAID1+0 or RAID0+1, both of which are being deprecated).
