"OK, the answers here are not entirely correct.

I was able to get my working without reinstalling the OS.

1) Sometimes the mobo's raid controller has two extra sata ports that are not part of the RAID controller, so move your OS drive there.
2) Enable the RAID controller, and this is where I went wrong, DONT CONFIGURE THE RAID JUST YET.
3) Let Windows Boot up, it will install the drivers for the raid controller. If not you can just get the drivers from the MOBO's website.
4) Restart and configure your raid :)
5) You will have to format your drives when you turn it back on, since they have to system type"

You can't create a RAID 0 on a volume that already has Windows installed on it. You need to create the RAID first, then install Windows.

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStorV change value from 3 to 0 and reboot.

Reinstall intel drivers for RAID and will be ok!"
