Rebuild RAID 1

1 Endorsement
Last Modified: 2016-12-08
I have a RAID 1 system with a clicking HD.  The system won't boot.

I tried disconnecting the clicking drive... still will not boot.  Thought the benefit of RAID 1 was it would still boot.

Anyway, I purchased a new drive and wish to rebuild the RAID.  

I am using Intel Matrix Storage Management in a DOS environment UI.  The OS is/was Vista.

Ctrl + I shows me four options... create, delete, reset disks to non-raid and exit.

I pulled the clicking drive, attached the new drive and clicked option 1 to create.  I received a "not enough space" message box.

Can any one tell me how to proceed please?
