I dropped a couple new 1 TB SATA drives on the server, set them up w/ RAID 1 using the BIOS, and formatted them using Disk Management.  I also marked them as "Active" which I now believe may have been a mistake.  (See image.)  If it is a mistake, how do I remove the "Active" status?  Delete the partition and rebuild it?

so
1- Reactivate the Partition C: ----> Rclick on C: then choose ----> mark as active . ( when you do that the new volume will deactivated automaticlly ) .
