Silly question, maybe, but have you formatted the partition you are wanting to install on?

Why are you running those hard drives in a RAID array? You'd be better off just doing a regular install on the Raptor with no RAID.

It should let you delete the partition and create a new one.

But as Casecutter said, why would you ever RAID a Raptor with slower drives?
