RST - An unknown error occurred during the volume creation  process.

Sometime ago my raid array broke for an unknown reason. At the time, during the process of trying to fix the problem, I removed the partition from the destination drive and I ended up breaking the volume.
- Intel RST - (latest)
- Gigabyte P55a-UD3 V.2 - F11 BIOS (latest)
- I have two identical drives: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ST310005N1A1AS-RK
  Port 0 - has my Windows 7-64bit and 2 other data partitions. There is also about 50 Gig un-partitioned
            100 Mb System/Reserved 
            195.21gb  Boot/Windows
             50.65 fb   Data 
             585.84      Data
             99.61 free/not partitioned.
             *All partitions are not completely full
  Port 1 - drive has no partitions/no data
I have the mobo configured with the SATA Control Mode" "RAID(XHD)", however both drive show up as Non-RAID Disk.
Now when I try to either create a RAID 1 volume or recovery volume using the Intel RST utility, indicating I want to save the data from the drive on port 0 (my boot drive), I immediately see this message:
An unknown error occurred during the volume creation  process. Please
try creating the volume again.
My goal is to create a Raid 1 volume while not losing any data or having to re install the O/S from the boot/windows drive. What am I a missing?
