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

Think of it like this-how could you load windows from a drive that doesn't exist in the first place? You'll have to build the array entirely, and then you can load windows after. If you begin the array reconstruction, then restart the machine to load windows, obviously the array wouldn't be properly constructed for use since the build process wasn't completed.
