Default Setting up a RAID 1 configuration.

Here's my set of questions:
1. I've got the identical HD. But can RAID be configured if one drive has been used, and one drive is new? Or do they both have to be fresh?
2. ...How would you set one up? But seriously, how?

Thank you. And I apologize for all my threads.

Im not sure on if they have to be fresh...To set up raid you would need a raid card unless your mobo supports raid...So if it doesnt u need to buy a pci raid controller...Im not so sure about all the details

This is the description I found on my motherboard... I'm assuming I don't need to purchase a raid controller?

Serial ATA / RAID
Next-generation Serial ATA enables high-speed storage transfers with up to a 50 percent increase in data throughput to reduce application start-up times and provide near-instantaneous data access. Serial ATA RAID 0 and 1 provide unparalleled performance and data security to meet the demands of the most extreme computing enthusiast.

IDE cables are the cables that are hooking your HD's up rite now. To change to raid it different wires...Once you plug them in i think you use i windows wizard and it will set it up for you..Im sure if yo google it will give you in depth stuff on how to set it up
