So you have 5 disks.

and windows see's all 5 disks.

that means that you have no hardware raid at all, (as in that case windows only see's 1 disk)

when you look at disk manager, (which I assume you already did to see that your disks are dynamic and not basic) that tells you what the disks are doing


look at the picture on the bottom of this page:
Raid 1 (Disk Mirroring), Implementing disk mirroring on a Windows server 2003

you see that the drive D: is on two volumes.

the column titled layout tells you what RAID level you have.

if you look at the attachment you'll see that a hardware RAID card will recognise separate disks, and also let you know what RAID level you have.

the place you're looking is the BIOS?
this is just going to tell you what disks you have.

if there is a place to configure RAID in the BIOS it's not on the screen that you're looking at.
