I discovered how to get to BIOS on the laptop.  <esc> very early in the

One item, OROM UI <enable/disable> was disabled.  Enabling this flashes
a menu for 2 sec on boot that allows <ctrl-I> to get into the raid ROM
for setup.

I see the ability to create/delete raid volume and reset to non-raid.

The disk/volume information is
ID   Name        Level             Strip   Size      Status Bootable
0    RAID-0      RAID0(Stripe)     32KB    1.1TB     Normal   Yes

Port    Device Model       Serial     Size     Type/Statue(Vol ID)
0       Toshiba MK6461GS  61ABD08TB   596.1GB  Member Disk(0)
1       Toshiba MK6461GS  61ABD08SB   596.1GB  Member Disk(0)

I still do not understand which disk to install to, ad4, ad6, or, ar0?

See my earlier message containing the output of fdisk.
