I have a HP ML110 G6 with one drive in it.  I have a second drive I would like to add as a Raid 1 configuration.

The raid option appears on the motherboard and we are on the latest bios.

So, can I plug in the second drive, boot the machine
then reboot, enable the raid on the motherboard and congfigure for Raid?
Or is this unbelievably stupid as I will lose all of the data on drive 0?
Identical Sata drives.

I have searched and found issues close, but not quite like this.

Has anyone done this?
