Raid mirror set-up

Hi. My main problem is that I don`t know how to instal 2 new 500Gb sata drives in a mirror formation. I already have a sata drive installed, but it seems to be failing. I need to instal the 2 new drives, then copy all data from the old drive to one of the new ones. Any help would really be appreciated.
Thanks

What's your motherboard make & model? With this you can determine whether it supports RAID in the first place. If it does, its manual (PDF if a hard copy is unavailable) should have detailed instructions on setting up RAID.

So start by telling us your motherboard's make & model. G

What is your operating system

I'm only asking for the name & model number, not what's in it. This is usually printed on the top side of the board, &/or on a label on the under side.

I've purchased many secondhand motherboards in the past - some came with a manual, some didn't. For the latter, I've always been able to download a PDF copy of the manual from the motherboards' websites.

It may be harder to find out if it came out of a readymade system that you don't know the make & model of, but its BIOS will usually give it away. You can also ask the previous owner. G
