Setting up RAID on a RP5700

I am having difficulties setting up RAID on a RP5700 POS system. The INTEL drivers downloaded from this site says that the system does not meet the minium requirements but as far as I can tell, it does. Other documentation says to install the drivers before you make the BIOS settings. That's what I am trying to do. Any help?

Re: Setting up RAID on a RP5700

Not sure if you still need help...

This is how I set up my rp5700 for RAID1:
Press F2 to go into the BIOS
Under storage options, change SATA emulation to RAID
When the computer next booted up to the blue HP splash screen, pressed escape
Then pressed ctrl-I to enter the raid console utilty
Then I chose option 1 to set up RAID with the two drives

Remember, you won't see the prompt to press ctrl-I to use the RAID utility unless you press escape when you see the blue screen

Hope this helps....
