80gb X25-M SSD not recognized when installing Windows 7

Hi,

My setup is as follows.

P45 chipset with ICH10R and a JMicron sata chipset.

INTEL SSDSA2M080G2GC Firmware 2CV102HD

I currently have 5 hard drives connected to the ICH10R in Raid mode. 2 drives in raid 0 and 3 drives in Raid 5.

When I connect the Intel 80GB X25-M (G2) to the ICH10R, Bios recognizes the drive, but Windows 7 64bit installation doesn't.

The drive works in AHCI mode when connected to the JMicron controller, but it runs a lot slower than the ICH10R.

How can I keep my Raid configuration and the SSD on ICH10R?

This is interesting... After hours of messing around with setting up the drives, i've found something. It seems that i'm unable to use all six ports on my motherboard. Whats strange is Bios recognizes the RAID 0, RAID 5, and the SSD. Once it boots into windows, Port 5 goes missing and the RAID 0 array is degraded.. If I unplug the SSD, the RAID 0 array is good.
