I want to create software raid on a "normal" way
So I got 2 disks: disk 1 ( 250 GB ) and disk 2 ( 1TB ).
Disk 1 got 1 partition with Win7 OS and disk 2 is unallocated..

So I convert disk 1 to dynamic and add a mirror to disk 2 with diskmgmt.msc
After resynching the 2 disks, i started with testing.

I reboot the system with 2 disks in it, I see 2 bootables: Windows 7 and Windows 7 - secondary plex
Now, I shutdown the computer, I delete disk 1 and try to start again.
I can't start because an error showed up: unable to boot....

How can I make disk 2 bootable? Do I missed something?

Thanks!
