You can't "uninstall" it but you can disable RAID on the controller. Where it is at is different for each motherboard model so you just have to page through the menus to find it. Sometimes it is under an "Integrated Peripherals" or something of that sort.

"Uninstall"? Usually for a typical motherboard, to disable / enable RAID function, you need to go into the system BIOS to do it. Once RAID is enabled in BIOS, usually right after POST, you will see an additional RAID setup util, which you can go into by pressing certain key. In the RAID util, you can setup or remove RAID arrays to your preference. If this is a non-boot RAID array, you can also remove RAID arrays using software utils in the OS.

If you have an existing RAID array, to remove the array you use the RAID util. Then if you want to disable it completely, go into BIOS to turn off RAID. Be Warned: Doing so you may loose all data in your hard drives! Always backup your existing system first, before doing such change.

First off, or lastly if you're hardcore....RTFM (Read The Farkin' Manual)!
Go to: http://tinyurl.com/p4dbf
Select Manual.
Chose the User Guide that has your language preference.
Follow the steps associated with Enabling/Disabling RAID support, and check to make sure that there are NO Devices in the RAID enabled list.
Save Settings, restart.
As stated above, you will probably loose all of your data, especially if you are breaking a RAID 0. There is a high possibility of retaining your information if you are presently configured as a RAID 1, but you may need to do a repair in order to set a drive bootable (a MBR rewrite).
