My two 400G drives which have been added to a single 800G array (per fastbuild bios utility) still show up as two 400G drives in fdisk. Why is that?...

    Why does hardware RAID 0 still show up as 2 drives?

    Because you have no hardware RAID. You have some configuration in BIOS which sets up software RAID at boot. Works transparently for Windows users who genuinely believe they have hardware RAID on their motherboard. RAID prices start from $300, how much did your motherboard cost?
