When you do anything with the RAID, you can either re-configure it from within the BIOS (Control + I), or from inside the Windows.
The Old Matrix Storage has been replaced by the Rapid Storage Technology. You should see either of them. It starts as both a service and a startup app. Use the Matrix Storage or RST to re-configure the RAID...
My Menu options when I enter Ctrl + I at bootup are:
1. Create Raid Volume 3. Reset Disks to Non Raid
2. Delete Raid Volume 4. Recovery Volume Options
When in Windows, under All Programs, there is no Intel program. Where would I get that program to work with my system.
The OS is Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation. (Works great -- I have NEVER had a problem with the System in over 5 Years.)
Replace one disk, install the new disk. Boot up, then the BIOS would know the RAID is degraded. Get into BIOS RAID, then you'll get option to fix the RAID with the new spare.
Download the Rapid Storage Technology software. Then you can rebuild the array from inside the Windows.
I simply shut down the system. Physically replaced one of the two disks in the raid.
When I rebooted I got the message in the bios:
""Degraded" volume and disk available for rebuilding detected. Selecting a disk initiates a rebuild. Rebuild completes in the operating system."
I pressed Enter to select the new disk, Pressed ESC to exit and it rebooted and operated as usual.
I checked a few days later and found that the new disk was now a member disk.
I replace the second original disk yesterday as I had done for the first one. It is rebuilding now.
It was a VERY simple procedure although I never believed it would be that simple until I actually did it.
Thanks, Red Sun for your help.
