Cannot install and see 3 SAS drives

Hello all!
I have a HP Proliant DL360 G5 on my workplace that has a HP Smart Array E200i with 4 SAS disk storage.
I configured them, the first on RAID 0 with Windows Server 2003, and the 3 drives left on RAID 5 to store data.
My problem is that the drives built on RAID 5 do not appear on the My Computer window.
In the HP array configuration utility all seems to be working properly and the 2 arrays well configured.
I have the controller memory with the 128 MB BATTERY BACKED WRITE CACHE ENABLER KIT to allow the RAID 5 extension.
I need some ideas. Anyone had the same problem?
Thanks in advance!
Regards,

Re: Cannot install and see 3 SAS drives

Since Windows installed, I'd guess you configured the RAID level and Logical Drives correctly. Windows set itself up on the RAID 0 drive as "C:" You'll probably need to go into the Windows Disk Manager, partition and format the other array before it will show up as a disk under "My Computer"
