    Possible to add new hard drive and make RAID 1

    I have a server with single hard drive. Windows 2008 R2 is installed on it. Is it possible to add another hard drive and make it RAID 1? OR I need to re install whole OS from scratch? Looking for software RAID 1.

    Yes you can just add another disk, no need to reinstall.

    In "Disk Management"

    1) Convert your current disk to a dynamic disk
    2) Right click the source disk and select "Add Mirror" and then select the 2nd disk
    - The disks will need to be the same size
