Rebuilding RAID 1 array on P4P800 SE motherboard

OK I'm trying to rebuild this RAID array. I have 2 seagate 80 GB hard drives using the onboard RAID controller. How do I rebuild this array? I'm in the config menu and it says its degraded and one drive has an error and the other is running normally. I reinstalled windows on one single drive but realized that one of the cables was the problem so I replaced it and need to basically rebuild this array. I'm running on 2 hours sleep here so bear with me LOL.

If you need any more details please let me know.

You need to sync second drive through windows. Install Intel appliation and within application you will get option to rebild.

Your motherboard has Intel Raid ICH5r chipset.

If by saying "config menu" you talk about the BIOS one that appears if you press CTRL-I at boot, then I am afraid you can't do much from there.

You need to download the latest Intel® Application Accelerator RAID Edition.
After reboot it should detect that the RAID volume was "degraded".
Use the (now spare) second HD and tell it to use it for rebuilding.

Good luck.

I couldn't get this RAID array to rebuild itself at all. Files were damaged or something I'm not aware of. I tried all suggestions here and others with no luck. I ended up reinstalling windows on one hard drive as this was a POS(point of sale) system and they needed it back ASAP. I'm retrieving the files from the other mirrored hard drive and putting the files on disc. Thanks to all that responded, I appreciate it.
