HP Elite 8300 RAID

HP Elite 8300
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

 have a HP8300 CMT that I want to add RAID 1 (Mirror Drives)  to.  It 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.  I'm using Windows 7 Pro - 64

Yes some BIOS need to be changed but if your chipset is intel and you planning to use the instel software you have big chances to the software do everything to you just setup at software seat and relax. You dont need to reinstall windows just do the RAID.
