When Raid turned on in bios 2nd & 3rd partions disappear

When Raid turned on in bios 2nd & 3rd partions disappear

(OP)
I have Asus DSBF-DE server MB with IDE WD 500 HD Disk 0(3 partition 127GB each) and two Seagate 750 SATA HD Disk 1 & Disk 2.  Also have 2 Intel Xeon E5410 processors.  When I install W2K SP4 configures drive C no problem.  I see Disk 1 and disk 2 basic each with 128GB.  Since I want to setup drive E & F on WD 500 and use raid 1; how do I get access to the rest of the WD hard drive?  I can turn off raid in bios and then I can see rest of WD hard drive. Thanks    

RE: When Raid turned on in bios 2nd & 3rd partions disappear

I believe it's all in how (and when) you partitioned.  You should first create a 500GB RAID 1 array using the entire drive(s), then partition it as if it was a single drive.  You will then have (3) RAID 1 arrays, or so it will appear in BIOS.
