PDSMi RAID - Intel or Adaptec?

    So what's the deal here? This new PDSMi motherboard comes
    with a manual that says it has the Intel ICH7R RAID controller,
    and that you use <Ctrl><I> to enter the RAID setup.

    The bootup screen says it is an Adaptec RAID controller and
    that you use <Ctrl><A> to enter the RAID setup.

    Furthermore, when you load the Intel driver during Windows
    installation (F6), Windows sees two separate drives to choose
    from to install Windows instead of one logical drive.

    Can someone suggest what to do? Is the manual wrong
    and we should install the Adaptec RAID driver for F6?

    Disregard. It works fine if you use the
    "Intel SATA Drivers by 3rd Party (Adaptec)"
    drivers.
