    I recently just broke my raid one array to to check the smart status of both of the drivers. I initially set up the raid for my system in 2008 and everything seems to be intact and working fine so obviously want to restore the raid 1. I went into the option rom (post bios) to restore the raid1 and noticed that I couldent do so with out erasing both of the drives and starting a new "clean" raid1. So I decided to use intel rapid storage technology to migrate the 1 drive to other.

    My question is. Is there any disadvange to the raid set up in windows vs the option rom? Or is is just the a different way of doing the same thing?

    Update turns out the option rom screen updated my raid config from using the windows utility. So basically its just a diffrent way of doing the same thing

    Braking your raid was a brave move. Why not just look at the drive properties through the Rapid Storage Interface - which would of reported an error if there was one...
