    Create raid 1 without trashing original HD


      New HP 8100 Elite PC. Has Q57 PCH-D0 chip.  The PC was supposed to have dual 1TB HD in a RAID 1 config. Shipped with only 1 drive.  Now have 2nd HD and want to create the RAID 1.  But I believe using the ctrl-I RAID interface will result in trashing the original HD.


      I can get around this by booting from a CD and Ghosting the current HD, define the RAID then boot from the CD again and Ghost the HD back.


      I would rather do this in place.
