Default Adding Drives To Raid

I have a machine that has 2 wd 500 gb drives in the raid 0 mode with a stable version of Vista on it.

I heard if you have a 3rd drive that is the same, you can add in the drive but if i do that would it blow out the OS or do i just rebuild the raid and set drive in intel raid management.

Default Re: Adding Drives To Raid

Im not sure about raid 0 but raid 1 or higher will rebuild. Try are see if it will accept the new drive in the intel raid bios screen. After that if it boots then you should be able to get it rebuilt using the management console.
