I have a Biostar motherbord (ta870+) that has AMD SB850 chipset. I have RAID1 with a pair of 1TB drives, (one Western Digital, one Seagate). I rebooted the other day and the RAID scan at POST came up critical indicating the Seagate drive was not responding or had failed.

I am trying to replace it with a brand new drive, however the Option ROM interface for the RAID configuration does not appear to have any way to rebuild on the new drive or replace the failed drive in the LD config with the new one. I can delete the configured LD in the RAID config. but that prompts indicating you are deleting the data on the drive, which I don't want to do.

Searching forums and the like I see others referencing AMD Raidxpert software to add the new drive but I cannot find Raidxpert software for the SB850 chipset. The disk that came with the motherboard does not have any software related to RAID on it other than the chipset driver, and neither does their website. AMD website does not apear to have software for this chipset either.

So what do I do now? btw the drive that the RAID controller indicated was not responding appears to check out as good when I connect it to a different sata port (the SMART heath check looks good).

Should I be thinking the motherboard is defective and if not how do replace a drive in a RAID 1 setup with this SB850 chipset?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
