Intel RST fails during rebuild of RAID 1 array after replacing HD

ASUS P6T6 Revolution
Windows 7 x64
Intel RST v.
2 x Seagate ST3100528AS

RAID 1 became degraded and reported the failure of one of the disks. I replaced the disk with new Seagate ST3100528AS (exact same disk as the one that is still good.)

Intel RST sees the new HD and attempts to rebuild the array, but rebuild fails after .02% complete.

Intel RST then shows the disk as missing with a size of 0 MB.

If the computer is re-booted, it goes through the same sequence and fails again.

Is this a bad HD or is there another issue? I have previously replaced these HD’s with no problem re-building the RAID array.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If this is not the correct place on this forum for this question, please let me know.

Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

Before I can try to help you, I need some additional informations:

  1. Which Intel RAID ROM version is the Intel SATA RAID Controller of your mainboard using?
    Note: You can see the version of the Intel RAID Utility y hitting CTRL+I while booting.
  2. Why are you still using the meanwhile totally outdated Intel RST driver v9.6.0.1014?
