Proliant 310 - remirror existing ide drive

Unit has two 40gb IDE/ATA drives, HP hardware ATA raid. I needed to convert the unit from netware to win2003. I needed a quick fallback position in case of a failed install, so I uncabled the second drive during the upgrade. Server is now running Win2003. The server still believes there is a failed mirror. I would like to reestablish the mirror. The documentation is a little sketchy...if I reconnect the drive after a reboot, do I have the option of ensuring the new Win2003 drive is mirrored (and *not* the Netware) since the drive serial numbers haven't changed? Would I need to reformat the old OS drive to wipe any metadata that may be there?

Thanks.

To be safe, wipe the old disk, but the controller know which drive has failed and should rebuild the drive, overwriting the old mirror data.
