Ok so I have 4 hard drives on my computer. 3 250GB and one 500GB drives. When I first built this computer , none of them showed up. Not in the BIOS or anything. But I went into RAID utilities and was able to set up the three smaller HDD into a RAID 5 array. This allowed me to located a place to load an OS. Unfortunately the other HDD is still not present. However if I go into the RAID utilities again it picks up both the array and the single hDD. Just wondering why I can not see anny of the drives in BIOS and why I can not use the 500GB drive.

What os are you using? Is the HDD SATA? if so you may need to load the sata drivers for it.
