There no sense to waste the rest of 320 gb for operatiing system besides giving you some fault tolerance. That was why I promptly wiped the array and reconfigured it to be hardware raid. To mirror to an existing volume using Disk management, right click on the existing volume in the graphical view and select Add Mirror to invoke the Add Mirror dialog shown below: The above dialog will list disks eligible to act as a mirror for the existing volume. As mentioned previously, a mirrored set must be comprised of two disk drives.
Begin the process by invoking the Disk Management snap-in. To achieve this right click on the failed volume and select Remove Mirror. Therefore, all that needs to be done is to add disk 2 as the mirror disk for our volume using the add disk command. Configurations with both drive versions exhibit the fault. Enter the Data Recovery module and choose on the Data Recovery wizard. I've even tried download individual drivers from.
Sorry, I forgot to mention that the servers were also burn-in tested for a week and have had a full set of tests on all hardware, including memory. Hi, thank you for your comment.

Next, identify a suitable alternate or newly installed drive with sufficient space to act as a mirror. Has anybody else experienced this behaviour? Right click on Disk 0, select Convert to Dynamic Disk. The installer will detect certified drivers but after loading them it fails to detect the hard drive.
I've seen corruption problems, not quite like this, but similar, that went away when I made that change. A lil' ticked by this point, I decided to attempt to use your instructions and install the driver during setup of R2 version. Thus improving performance instead of impeding. I also have a ssd installed that I am not familiar with. Even if the array controller is completely stable are any?

I can post these two, but I do not think the exact errors are relevant, as they vary each time. If this fails the disk may be unrecoverable and will need to be replaced.
