Installing this Brand New drive on a Brand New Win 7 64 bit Home Premium HP Pavillion HPE. WD RAID Manager comes up and I cannot choose RAID config it is like the they are grayed out the quick format box I can click and unclick but not the raid options and cannot go forward until I choose a configuration. The machine see the drive it comes fomatted for Mac and formatted partition with Win 7 Disc management as found on WD support.. Went there because my user guide was only showing Win Vista so I was looking for an updated user guide possible firmware update.
In Win disc management it show 200mb EFI System that I cannot do anything with and then the remaining 5.8TB formatted as simple drive.
Right now WD Drive manager shows it as RAID 0 Healthy 1% used but I cannot change it to a RAID 1 like I wanted.
Contacted support and they are telling me to reformat using WD Disc Manager but I cannot do anything with that.

When I right click on the task bar WD icon near the Clock I only get About WD RAID Manager , WD MY BOOK USB HDD> that brings up RAID Manager and Safely Remove. I do not get Run as Administrator Anywhere
It is showing also that I have WD Drive Manager v2.111
