I recently experienced a double hard drive failure; 1 drive (WD raptor) contained the OS and the other drive was a member of a 2 disk RAID 1 array (via ICH10R southbridge). I bought a new SSD for the OS and bought a replacement drive for the RAID 1 array. I installed both drives, rebuilt the array via the low level intel RAID tool (that appears prior to OS boot, using ctrl I). Then I installed Windows 8 on the SSD. Now, I'm not sure how to tell whether my RAID 1 array is rebuilding within windows 8 or whether I have to do something additional to make that happen. In the low level intel tool it says "rebuild" with a note that the rebuilding will take place within the OS; two HDDs are listed and both are labeled as member disk. When I go into disk management in windows, all I see regarding the RAID 1 array is "Disk 1" labeled as "storage" (the name it previously had); it is listed as healthy, basic, active primary partition. Nowhere do I see two disks listed for the RAID 1 array. In device manager the array is listed as "storage" and had one entry; the SSD in contrast is listed by the HDDs model number. How can I get the array to rebuild and how can I tell that it is doing so?
