Correct. Expensive RAID cards make "hide" the second drive from linux.
The CARD does the RAID then.

The cheaper cards do not have the expensive chips, and therefore use a
software raid kind of RAIDing... Then the drive does show, and the system
sees it as a 2 drive system, whereas a hardware RAID only shows 1.

So Gerald is right. If you have an expensive RAID controller, use 1 drive
install. Make sure you properly configure the RAID bios then!!!
