I copied this post from the ubuntu forums, just in case there's somebody here who can help me find the answer more quickly.

System:
i7 2600K @ 3.5 Ghz
Gigabyte GA-P67X-UD3-B3 mobo
Corasir Vengenace DDR3 ram. 16 GB
ATI Radeon 5870 x2
Seagate Barracuda 1TB(Sata3 model of some type) - Windows 7 64
Seagate Barracudea 7200.11 1.5 TB
Western Digital 500GB HDD (Sata2 model of some type) x2

Originally I had my windows 7 install on the 2 WD drives in Raid 0
I've migrated my install over to the new 1TB seagate and windows works fine.
I've changed my BIOS settings to put all of my RAID capable chips into IDE mode.
Windows recognizes both drives as separate and full of RAW data that it cannot interpret (sounds about right to me)

First boot into Kubuntu 12.04 live cd and running the installer:

Shows the 2 hard drives as 1 raid drive. Even though the mobo is in IDE mode.

2nd boot:
In windows 7 used disk management to delete the volumes and make both drives unallocated space.
No change in Kubuntu installer

3rd boot:
In windows used disk management to format each drive separately (NTFS) and assign a drive letter in windows
Both drives are in My Computer and separate.
No change in Kubuntu installer

4th boot:
in WIndows, dumped about 25 GB of random data (media files) into each drive.
No change in Kubuntu installer.

I am trying to install kubuntu on ONE of the WD drives, and leave the other one alone to try something else on.
Any idea why the installer refuses to separate these drives and look at them as 2 physical drives rather than one raid volume?

Did you set the nodmraid flag when the cd was booting up?

I guess my other thought is to boot up a copy of gparted and make sure the drive type is showing as MS-DOS and not RAID.
