I am having a problem with setting up a Raid 1 array. I am using Windows Vista Ultimate 32 along with an Asus M2NPV-VM motherboard. After viewing videos on Raid Array setup on Youtube, I decided this chore should not be so difficult. I entered the bios and followed the prompts and made my Raid 1 array. No error messages, and both of my WD3200 HDD were listed, and the array was boot enabled and labeled healthy.
I then inserted my Windows Vista Ultimate CD and clicked on Repair, and on to restore my pc. Windows discovered my external backup, and I then chose the backup that I wanted. I followed the prompts and then clicked restore and received a message that stated that there were to few drives or not enough space to continue. I now do not know how to proceed. Any suggestions would be helpful.
I call this PC my "learning PC". I am trying to learn some of the more exotic functions of my PC. I have read that the Windows Vista built in backup utility is good for backup restore, but not to be used for Raid. Is this true? If so, what product would help me with this issue? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I'm no expert but i do know ... On a complete pc restore "which I'm guessing your trying to do" Your new HDDs must be as large or larger than the original.
