Hello Sen,
I believe you should be able to do the software mirroring. You should confirm this on MS.Technet site.

Hi Sen,
Yes it's possible to migrate from raid 0 to Raid 1 without data lost and with some precautions with Compaq/HP Smart Array controler:
1 - old smart array can't migrate (SA 2xx,...).
2 - only Smart Array controleur with cache memory BATTERY can migrate.
3 - be sure you have the latest firmware for BIOS and Smart Array controleur.
4 - Be sure you have the latest ACU (Array Configuration Utility).
5 - be sure you have free space disk (ie, add a new drive and not migrate a 2 drives Raid O to 2 drives Raid 1).
6 - MAKE A FULL BACKUP BEFORE CHANGING ANYTHING or MIGRATION.
Regards.
