    Why does the Intel Matrix Storage Manager show "Rebuild" after primary disk replaced in RAID 1 volume?


      Win 10 Professional

      Dual XEON E5506 @ 2.13 GHz HP Z600 Workstation

      HP PCB Fab Rev 1.0


      AS# 460840-003 REV AJ

      System BIOS 786G4 v03.12

      Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller

      RAID volume RAID1_v1, SATA RAID Level 1

      Volume 0: Model WD3200AAKS Western Digital Caviar Blue 320 Gb HD (replacement drive)

      Volume 1: Model WD3200AAKX Western Digital Caviar Blue 320 Gb HD (original secondary drive)


      Z600 starts into BIOS

      After Ctrl-I, Intel Matrix Storage Manager has marked the RAID1_v1 volume with "REBUILD" status.  States the OS will rebuild the volume.

      After multiple starts, RAID1_V1 still shows degraded with "REBUILD" status.

      Upon Exit, Windows starts normally.


      Intel Article ID: 000005775, "Rebuilding Degraded RAID Volume After Failed Drive Is Replaced" gives these steps:

      1. Turn on the system.

      2. Click Start.

      3. Click All Programs.

      4. Click Intel.

      5. Click Intel® Rapid Storage Technology.

      6. Click Rebuild to another disk.

      7. Select the replacement hard drive and click Rebuild.


      Downloaded current Intel Rapid Storage Technology package and installed.


      Following install, Z600 boots into critical error "Cannot access boot volume" after along time.  Restart from this brings up Windows Repair.


      I am restoring the system to my last restore point from Windows Repair advanced options. This may get me back into Windows, assuming the RST driver download is the problem, but I still don't know how to rebuild my RAID 1 volume.
