rebuilding my array

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
I have 4 WD 300GB velociraptors in Raid 0+1, and i had to RMA one of the disks recently. I have a 790 ultra SLI, using nvidias integrated raid. How do i go about rebuilding it when the new drive gets here? I know to hit f10 and to go into the array and hit R to rebuild, however do i wait for it to finish rebuilding or do i load windows and it just rebuilds in the background? Any info would help.
Thanks

It should rebuild automatically in the background... Otherwise, you should be able to use the RAID management utility provided by NVidia to initiate the rebuild in Windows.

Or you can do it from the RAID BIOS like you wrote. It should rebuild as long as you keep the computer powered-on.
