Did I lose a drive in my RAID5?

I can't quite find the documentation necessary to figure out what this means, but my RAID array isn't showing up in Windows and figure the "Rebuild" means I lost a drive, but I just can't get any more info out of it and was hoping someone here could help me.

Mobo: Asus A8N-SLI Premium
RAID: Silicon Image 3114R Chip



Thanks!

It looks like you should replace Drive 0, then boot up, and it should sense the new drive and rebuild it (or you may need to go into the RAID Bios and initiate the rebuild command).

Yeah, I think I'll go to fry's and get another drive. The problem is, not sure how it'll rebuild, the only option is to rebuild RAID1 and I can't get the RAID5 windows application running (some stupid java program).

Hopefully it'll be automatic like you say :crossing fingers:
