What doesn't work:

Ubiquity installer used in Mint and Ubuntu does not detect this or any other hard drive when flagged as "Raid Ready"

What was done to make it work:

Removed the "raid ready" drive and installed a standard SATA drive. It is possible that just wiping the drive, resetting thre BIOS to AHCI, and reinstalling everything will work.

Nuked hard drive and reinstalled after ensuring hard drive controller was set to AHCI, not Raid. Works perfectly.
