ML115 G5 - Step by Step raid instructions?

I am new to raid and looking for instructions on how to configure this server for raid 1.

I have installed 4 harddisks. The primray has xp pro installed. I cannot see how to get disk 3 and 4 to mirror disk 1 & 2. I have Raid enabled in the bios but the server will not boot to the OS.

Advice on how best to proceed.

Hi,
Please refer the steps given below:

1. Power up the server. If the server is already powered, save all data, exit all open applications, and
restart.

NOTE: Enabling the RAID option in BIOS Setup Utility is only necessary for installation of the
RAID driver. If this option is not enabled, the OS loads the standard ATA driver from the OS
media.
2. During POST, press the F10 key to launch BIOS Setup Utility. If you fail to press F10 before POST,
you will need to restart the server.
3. In the Advanced menu screen, select HDD Configuration.
4. Select the SATA RAID Setup field.
5. Set the SATA RAID Function field to Enabled.
6. Set the appropriate SATA channels for RAID to Enabled.
7. Press F10, then select OK to save the changes and close BIOS Setup Utility. The server automatically
reboots.
8. After the system reboots, the Option ROM status message appears on the screen. Press F8 to enter
the nVidia MediaShield Utility Option ROM user interface.
9. Use the up and down arrow keys to select the RAID mode.
10. Press Tab to select Free Disks.
11. Use the up and down arrow keys to select the disks on which the array will be created.
12. Use the left and right arrow keys to move the selected drives to the New Array Disks window.
13. Press F7 to begin creating a new array.
14. Press Y to clear disk data.
15. Press Ctrl+X to exit the Option ROM user interface.
