how to add a 2nd array?

We have one RAID 1 array on the Intel motherboard controller. Is it possible to add a second RAID1 array with 2 new hard drives? If so, how? I don't see that option under "STATUS". We're running I5 CPU and SATA drives.

 

Attempting to set it up through the BIOS, the new 4TB drives appear as only 1.6TB.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks in advance.

How old is your motherboard? It does not appear to have support for drives larger than 2TB. Enabling UEFI, if supported, will fix this issue. If UEFI is not supported, then you are out of luck.
