HP Elite 8300 RAID

HP Recommended
HP Elite 8300 CMT
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a HP8300 CMT that I want to add RAID 1 (Mirror Drives)  to an already running compter that has a 500GB drive.  I have ordered a matching drive.  Do I have to enable RAID in Setup (BIOS SATA Emulation) before using Intel Rapid Storage Manager from Windows?  Can I avoid doing a full OS Install and just have the new disk come online as a mirrored copy?

I have read the manuals available online and it isn't clear if the BIOs Setup for RAID is required or if it is an option to the Intel Software. 

 

I'm using Windows 7 Pro - 64
