NVIDIA Raid Mirror Rebuild

Hello,
I have an ASUS M2NPV-VM Motherboard and it has the NVIDIA raid controller built in. I setup a 2 disk mirror with it and the disks are 300GB. I accidently removed one of the RAID drives and put in a 1TB drive. I removed the 1TB drive once I found out NVIDIA wanted to rebuild it. Now, I am back to 1 drive and the RAID controller thinks it is at a 10% rebuild.

I am trying to find out the best steps and easy way to get back to a 2 disk RAID (mirror). Should I format the 2nd disk and add it back to the machine? If so, What must I do to tell the NVIDIA raid controller to rebuild onto the new disk. Like I mentioned, it currently thinks it is rebuilding the 1TB drive and is stuck at 10%. That drive is no longer in the computer.

Thanks for your help.
John

Did you try inserting the 1TB drive to see if it continues to rebuild?  If it does, let it finish and then replace it with the correct drive and let it rebuild again.  I would choose this option if it works, as it avoids breaking the array.

The other choice which would work is to use the 300GB drive as a standalone drive, create a backup image, recreate the mirror array, and restore from the image you just made to the array.

OK, I will try that. But, should I try the 1TB it wanted to work on earlier, or try another blank 1TB drive?

Try the one it worked on earlier - it may complete what it started.  If it fails, implement the other choice, which should work.

I will try to remember to let you know what direction it will go, but I will accept your answers for now since they seem like the only real choices I have and I might not get to this until tonight or tomorrow evening. Thanks for your help.
