Will downloading Windows Server 2012, SSDS and RAID1?

all kind time of day!
I ask the Board one question that has arisen.
there is a computer that performs the functions of DC running on Windows Server 2012 R2.
motherboard: ASUS H97-Pro
as a system disk SSD.
The system at regular intervals to a separate hard disk using the standard utility Windows Server Backup
In order to increase the fault tolerance I want to buy another one and make a RAID1 out of them.
There are doubts about a successful boot after installing the controller (or the implementation of the array means the motherboard) and combining the drive system with a net in the array.
Will there be any problems with loading or not?
if so, what it is possible to solve (avoid) with the least dancing?
In advance, thank you!

Will downloading Windows 2012 and SSD RAID1?
And where did she go? The only issue is whether firewood. It is quite possible that you will have to slip the wood.

If you want guaranteed no problems and dancing - all very simple.
1)Connect your new SSD.
2)Go to disk Manager and create a mirror of the current system disk to the new disk.
3)Waiting for sync and that was it.
As I understand it, to connect the new SSD directly into the mother using integrated RAID controller? - evie commented on July 9th 19 at 13:35
and if there is a separate controller? and at what stage to slip the wood? thank you! - evie commented on July 9th 19 at 13:38
: You have three options -
1) Buy a hardware controller.
2) Use the built-in Mat. cost of soft controller.
3) Create RAID using OS.

The first and the second option will need a driver.
Third option - nothing is required.
Set, synchronized and everything. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:41
: During initialization of the disk. Because without the firewood he disk do not see.
Well, or to plan in advance and install the required driver in the system. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:44
: now I understand! thank you! I understand if you organize the array by means of the OS in terms of reliability, no particular difference? the mirror is..in my understanding, a function of the controller will run the axis. - evie commented on July 9th 19 at 13:47
Yes. The mirror is organized by the system no worse than the hardware. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:50
thank You very much! - evie commented on July 9th 19 at 13:53
: thanks for the tip. and I came up with the idea. to do so:
1. Remove the system disk with Acronis True Image.
2. Create a mirror of two SSD (by means of the controller built into the mother or the hardware)
3. The same True Image deploy the image from point 1 on mirror.
does it work? - evie commented on July 9th 19 at 13:56
: and Acronis can restore to RAID?)) or as I understand it, while not check do not know?)) - evie commented on July 9th 19 at 13:59
Strange. I have 2012R2 system with no problems zerkaltsa. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 14:02
Artem, could you please describe in detail the sequence of your actions, if not difficult. thank you! - evie commented on July 9th 19 at 14:05
Went to disk management, all partitions of the system drive - right click - add mirror.
Then wait for synchronisation. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 14:08
: As I understand the problem with the EFI partition?
I now have no mirror EFI partition.
Tomorrow you can find on another server.
And this is done just mirror the whole disk, not a volume separately. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 14:11
