I have newbie to moderate technical skills, so my apologies for what may be a really dumb question.
I have been asked to replace a failing 250GB hard drive in a SATA RAID1 array on a Dell XPS 410. The owner doesn't want to expand their storage, but they want to replace the failing drive.
Do I need to do anything unusual in the hard drive replacement other than power down, remove and replace, and boot up? On boot up, what options will I be looking at to make sure the new hard drive simply mirrors what is on the existing without overwriting it?
RAID Controller = Intel ICH8R/DO/DH
OS = Windows XP
