    Raid 10 problem

    Mike

      I have a raid 10 setup on an Asus z68 motherboard.  I'm using Intel Rapid Storage Technology 10.5.0.1027.  I had a SMART event on a hard drive.  I just received new replacement drive and changed on the hard drive.  The hard drive is now not part of the array (I thought it would rebuild automatically.  When I boot windows and go into IRST it shows - Status, Manage, Preferences, Help.  It does not give me an option to add the new drive to the array or rebuild.  For some reason it also shows my Raid 0 as being 0GB and my Raid 10 as being 0GB.  How do I rebuild this array to the new drive?  Do I have to do this in bios?  I've never had to rebuild an array before.

       

      Here is the report from IRST :

          Ok... went into bios... it recognized my new hard drive and asked if I wanted to rebuild array on it.  I selected yes and it said it must be completed in windows.  I exited it out and started windows.  I open IRST and it now shows the drive with a check mark next to it... but it doesn't seem right that it automatically rebuild the array so quickly (instantly.)  The array is also showing a 5th drive with the yellow exclamation mark saying "missing drive" (which is my old drive).  Do I somehow have to delete the old drive?  Has my array been automatically rebuilt on the new drive?  It doesn't give me any options to delete the old drive or rebuild the new drive.  Please help.IRST.jpg

            Hi

             

            I have latest version of intell rapid storage, win 7 professional, 4 x 1 tb drives, operation system on ide drive,

            all drivers are up to date.

             

            I create a raid 10 with rapid storage, yet windows can't see the raid. I initialized the raid 10 and it's still not recognised.

             

            raid 10 is showing is boot menu and in rapid storage but not visible in windows ?

             

            Any idea what is going wrong cheers
