Don't know why your home PC would be looking for RAID, unless you purchased a very high-end PC or workstation.

Most 'newer' SATA MOBO's have it. Considering most people are still buying PATA, it goes ignored.

Does anyone know what I should do now about the new hardware being detected?

RAID works in different ways:
RAID 0 takes two disks and shares the data between them in stripes, making it look as tho the two disks are one big one, and increasing disk access speed at the same time, lose one disk and everything is lost.
RAID 1 takes two disks and mirrors them, everything on disk A also goes on disk B in an identical copy, lose one disk and the other one takes over.
RAID 5 takes multiple disks (usually 5), and uses a mixture of striping and parity to ensure fast access AND the ability to have one disk fail without losing information.

When you undid everything, you probably changed the order of something when you plugged it all back in again - this will force Windows to redetect everything, prompting for stuff you havent already got drivers installled for.
