    I can say with 99% certaintly, you do not. Real RAID cards would typically cost as much as your entire system. Different chips/methods are displayed differently - an Ubunutu thread on the same topic.

    * Yep, you have a fakeRAID provided by an onboard VIA chip:

    /dev/mapper/via_cjciaaadcg1 305C7DF75C7DB864 ntfs
    /dev/mapper/via_cjciaaadcg5 f171b078-30e1-4995-8cef-7f433d2b5bc9 ext4
    /dev/mapper/via_cjciaaadcg6 7f2b3918-5bc5-49ae-96e7-0f6d972599a9 swap

    Re-read the first thread I posted, it is the same config as yours. GRUB needs to be installed (probably manually) to /dev/mapper/via_cjciaaadcg.

    I studied the RAID tutorial and entered the following command:
    mint@mint ~ $ cat /proc/mdstat

    And I got the following result:
    Personalities :
    unused devices: <none>

    Based on the "How to configure RAID in Linux, it means Linux is not seeing any RAID arrays. What Linux shows under devices are a 148GB volume and a 100GB volume. The 100GB volume should be the part of the drive(s) Windows could see. The 148GB volume shows Linux files. It looks the same as what is shown for file system.

    The startup RAID BIOS utility shows 2 RAID arrays of 233GB, one Master and the Mirror.

    So I'm not sure what to do next.
