1) Make sure you have the necessary SATA RAID drivers installed for the H77 chipset, otherwise windows may bluescreen when it tries to boot after a SATA mode change.
2) In the BIOS, ensure the SATA mode is set to RAID, or RAID/AHCI. The H77 RAID functions won't be enabled if you have AHCI or IDE mode set here.
3) On exiting the BIOS, keep an eye out for the RAID configuration screen before you see windows start to load (It varies from board to board, but there's normally a prompt to press somthing like CTRL+R or CTRL+I).
4) From there, see what it says about your RAID volume.
You are looking for "RAID member disks" in the RAID config screen:
If they're detected as foreign disks, you may need to import them.
If you see a degraded volume it means one of the disk isn't working properly (but you should still see the RAID in windows)
If you don't see any disks at all, try panicking!
Google is your friend, otherwise come back here and post what you've got.

If not, we'll have to go deeper.

It's very odd that they aren't showing up in the bios/raid setup, could what killed your old mobo have damaged the drives too?
just brew it! wrote:That said, if the drives are not detecting in the BIOS it sounds like something killed the drives.
