When I boot up my computer, on the first screen where it shows my two hard drives, usually there is some green text that says "Member disk". Now, however, one of the drives says "An Error has Occured" in red. The computer then boots up normally and I can use it just fine.

What is going on?

Usually you would install intel matrix storage. That is the program inside Windows that will alert you of errors, again only inside windows, that is why you also see that info on bootup. Install the software and see what it tells you. Usually I see a little icon at the bottom right of my screen to indicate a failed member of an array, but you are correct if it's RAID1, you will still boot normal.

I attempted to do as you suggested, however, the program says that my computer does not meet the minimum requirements and then exits the installation. This is odd because my computer is pretty new... unless this is a really old program?
