Now that I think of it, I can imagine it. But would you need an on-board controller (which seems to be what he's got) for that?
The answer is maybe. Its strictly a software issue at that point, but I dont believe OS
's offer this option out right therefore a card is used just to initiate said raid. With the cost of HDD's so low, this technique is almost dead (if it was ever alive to begin with).
He did say he had two HDD's but it implies by his statement that they were never setup as any type of raid. Of course, he may not know and therefore he is implying incorrectly.
If I was him and lazy, I would ultimately unplug one hdd and then boot up. if it does boot up and still has both a c and d hdd drive, he had raid. If it doesn't boot up, I would plug back in, unplug the other and repeat. Yes there are better ways, but this is a simple way.
Of course if he doesn't have anything critical, well Jesus saves often to DVD's. Why bother with the hassle of raid unless its performance your after....
My two cents
