How do I configure my arrays and unRAID in general for this?

I am trying to setup unRAID, but I am confused with what an Array is and how I should set mine up.  My build has two 8TB HDDs installed in it and one 500GB HDD for the operating systems.  I want the setup configured so that I have the 500GB Drive partitioned into two partitions, 64GB for one OS with the two 8TB drives attached to it, and a 436GB partition for a Windows OS.  How do I configure this setup so I get my resources partitioned in such a way whereas this works as I described above?  Thanks in advance for any and all assistance you can provide.

unRAID is run from a flash drive, not a ssd. I would recommend you read some guides and watch a few videos to get familiar with how it works and how you can set it up as you have several options. SpaceinvaderOne got several good videos that will help you, start with something simple like the flashdrive :

I am providing a link to the old version 6 manual for Unraid.  It has a very good overview of what Unraid is and how it works:

As I read your post, I have the feeling that you are looking at some sort of a dual boot system or perhaps running either Windows or Unraid as a VM.  The recent versions of Unraid are designed to provide for Windows VM's.  Here is a link to the section of the new manual which explains what is necessary and how to implement it.

If you like this video that @ProZac linked you to, here is a post that has links to many other How-to videos:
