wild guess says, that isn't really a raid controller, that its a 
fake-raid, such as an Intel Matrix, where the 'raid' is done purely in 
the BIOS and the Windows Driver.

you're better off reconfiguring that for JBOD in the BIOS, and letting 
Linux see the physical disks (which it does, anywayas), and implementing 
mdraid mirroring in Linux natively.
