    No option to rebuild in IMSM after replacing failed raid 1 disk


      I have a Windows 7 64bit computer which uses a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD motherboard.

      I use the built-in Intel Raid chip on the motherboard to have a raid 1 array for my system volume.


      I have just had hard disk 0 of the array fail and I have replaced it with a new disk. The problem is that when I go into the Intel Matrix Storage Manager (v8.9) on bootup (using Ctr I) I get no option to rebuild the array using the new disk. According to the motherboard manual I should get an option for it. How do I get the array rebuilt without losing all the data?


      The Intel Matrix Storage Manager screen gives the following information:-

      Raid volume 0 - Status - failed.

      The disk which I have replaced has status - Non Raid Disk

      The good disk in the array has status - Member Disk (0)


      Because the system volume has status failed - I cannot boot into Windows


      Any help which allows me to rebuild the Raid 1 array without loosing the data would be gratefully received.
