School boy error with RAID setup

A bit of a school boy error on my brand new server regarding RAID.

Original setup

array #0: drive 2 + 3 RAID 1 (Win2k3 install)
array #1: drive 1 + 4 RAID 0 (empty array)

I converted array #1 to RAID 1 assuming that the setup would just mirror drives 1 + 4 and then saved the changes.

Upon restart the system would not boot so I went back into the RAID setup utility.
This is what the setup now reads:

array #0: drive 1 + 3 RAID 1
array #1: drive 2 + 4 RAID 1


For some reason the RAID setup has moved the drives around effecting both arrays.

Is there anyway I can salvage my Win2k3 install or should I just bite bullet and re-install?

Depends on the controller.
What controller you using?
Have you tried removing all disks apart from drive 3?

If you have just installed it and no important files are stored, I'd go for the second option: Just re-install and learn from it.
