    For drives setup in a RAID array to show up in the Bios, you would have to have a Hardware RAID controller attached to the motherboard or that is a part of the motherboard.
    For Software RAID you have to access them in Disk Management. Software RAID vs Hardware RAID: The Advantages and Disadvantages | Dataplugs

    Were you using AHCI or Legacy BIOS?
    I'm a bit curious about that question. Did you mean two different settings? Because AHCI refers to a SATA controller mode. SATA controller mode can typically be IDE, AHCI or RAID, but not Legacy BIOS. Legacy BIOS refers to the mode of booting, which choices usually are Legacy BIOS - which normally has no other choices. Or if the computer is UEFI the choices will be CSM (which is Legacy BIOS emulation) or UEFI. AHCI and Legacy BIOS are not really related to each other, however.

    In the early days of UEFI Bios, CSM was called IDE or Legacy. IDE, Legacy and CSM are all interchangeable, they still mean the same thing, but IDE and Legacy now have been replaced with CSM.
    Do you have a RAID setting under Hard Drive Mode in the Bios?

    I don't ever remember CSM mode being called IDE. IDE is a mode of a drive controller - not a mode of booting.

    @NavyLCDR, thanks for the lesson but I was searching for something thus my question as phrased.

    Anyway, I'm sure you know I better which is why you were puzzled. And if were talking legacy BIOS i.e. not UEFI, legacy could be SATA or IDE interface. I started with an IDE board - Abit BH6
