Use the latest smartstart CD and choose maintain server and then manage array.. the array configuration utility will start.

HI,
If you Have only two HDD then you use RAID1.
There is no meaning RAID1+0.
If you want this for 2HDD, RAID1 AND RAID1+0 are same meaning.

There is always some scope for improvment.
