Upgraded to new drives, but won't boot without the old ones.

Hello. We have a ReadyNAS Pro 4 we're trying to expand by replacing the old 1TB drives with new 3TB drives. The RAID sync for both drives finished successfully after putting them both in, but now when trying to remove the old drive, upon booting, it gives me the following error:
ERR: Could not m
ount Root RAID d
which I suppose stands for 'device' or 'drive'. Booting with the old drive works, but I need to boot it without the disc to take advantage of the expanded storage space, which I have been told will happen automatically once the smaller drive is gone. Is there any way I can change the root RAID device to one of my new drives?

You need to replace disk 3 with a 3TB disk to expand your volume.

However the NAS should still boot with the disk removed.

Can you send me your logs (see the Sending Logs link in my sig)?

I have sent an email to the address indicated at the Sending Logs link with the logs attached.

EDIT: Your mail server rejected my email. I resent it with a dropbox link.
