Setting up Raid 1 (mirror)

I had issues with HDD failure and standard backups were not ideal so I am trying Raid for the first time.  I considered a controller card but my motherboard has raid built in.

Go to bios (del), advanced>components> change to RAID for IDE SATA.  Can be under Storage Configurations.  Save and exit.

The shortcut is ctrl + i during boot.  This will bring up the RAID config.  Create new raid, raid level 1 mirror) select disks, create volume.

Need to start with 2 blank drives.
