You can set the controller to enable the write cache regardless of the battery or capacitor status. In the BIOS utility, select Cache Settings and Select Enable Write-Cache Battery Override.

comment p410i Mirror failed couldnt find same disk
If the array is currently showing as healthy in the ACU, you can hotswap the 250GB disk with the 500GB disk and it will rebuild automatically. No reboot required.

What do you mean by "latest build"? Just ignore the updates and install the latest-available ISO image? The incremental build numbers listes in the screenshot above are not fully-installable images. So they are applied to a full ISO installation.
