ive got a Sony VGC-RB57GY desktop sitting in front of me it had a bad hard drive but was previously setup as RAID-0. the bad hard drive was the main hard drive so i bought a new hard drive, same as the other one. a seagate 160gb hard drive. i plug the new one in and i wait for POST and hit ctrl+I like(because its an intel board) and it just stays at the POST screen until i hit ctrl+alt+del or restart the computer. does anyone have an idea as to why i cannot get into the RAID setup???

Ok what you do is when the VAIO logo pops up, press F2, then IMMEDIATELY hit CTRL + I. It will bring you into the raid setup. Worked like a charm for me!
