if you have 4 healthy drives in a RAID 10 volume, you should have the RAID driver installed on your system already - because you have to load the driver via F6 so Windows XP* can recognize the RAID controller and load.
and if the driver is loaded, the rebuild should begin automatically as soon as the OS loaded.
what I'm wondering is whether the rebuild is actually in progress - because if that was the case, I can see why the software might not let you update the driver that's rebuilding the system while the rebuild is in progress. [I haven't ever tried this to know if that's true, but it seems logical.] but if you don't have the UI/Event Monitor installed, there is no way to monitor progress.
what if you let the system sit for a day or so - while up and running so that the rebuild could occur if indeed it was in progress - and see what happens??
Thanks for the info. You are correct, the system was rebuilding and is now healthy. However, I am still unable to load the RAID Console from the drivers cd. Is it possible that the 2 are mutually exclusive. It appears that I can monitor the health of the array by watching things load on startup and if there are any failures, correct them through F6. However, it would be nice to have the ability to check and repair from within windows. I have that on another pc and it is a useful feature.
