Need a solution for a Software Raid on Intel DG965WH

I had setup a software RAID (Raid 0) on my Intel DG965RY motherboard. The motherboard had some issues and as it was in warranty i had it replaced. Now when I reconnected my hard drives to the replaced motherboard I can see the hard drives in the BIOS but how do i reconfigure the RAID as i cannot see it anymore.

"The configuration (was) hopefully stored on the RAID controller. Recreate the RAID configuration by going into the RAID manager:

Make sure you read the instructions, you don't want the RAID manager writing metadata to the hard drives and then you'll be even worse off.

Intel also has a RAID troubleshooting guide that might help:

Note that the process of installing RAID drivers for Windows XP will not help you yet. The drivers simply allow Windows to access the RAID controller. If RAID is not set up then connecting to the controller will not help.

If you absolutely need to get the data back you can try http://www.runtimedotorg/raid.htm

EDIT: Here is the product page I used to get the resources from:
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/DG965RY/

Expand out ""Installation"" and ""Technical Documentation"" if you need more assistance. There are also links to updated RAID drivers for if you need to install Windows XP again."
