Your first and biggest mistake is to use the built-in RAID functions of that fake-RAID controller. Fake-RAID controllers are cheap and totally unreliable. Never use them!

Windows 2008 r2 has very good native RAID functions built-in, that is much, much more reliable.

Setup your system from scratch, but this time make sure you have disabled BIOS RAID and are instead just using the disks as single disks. Then setup your OS and then in disk management use the RAID functions you have there.

Change the disk to dynamic using diskmanagement, and then you get the option to create your mirror. The link below should be of help:
