Physically disconnect the RAID drives from the system during the installation of Windows. Have the hard drive you install it on be the only drive Windows will see. This will cause it to take drive letter C:, if that's of any importance to you. Otherwise it will likely give drive letter C: to the RAID array. Not a big deal to everyone but a few don't like that. Once Windows is fully installed and boots satisfactorily, reconnect the RAID drives. Windows should find the new hardware and be access the data just fine. Make sure you back up the data on that array, however, as running RAID O is for those who like living on the edge. Good luck.
I am wanting to upgrade from Win7 32-bit to Win7 64-bit. I am told this will require a clean re-install of Win7. That isn't a problem in and of itself. My question is what will happen to the other RAID 0 arrays in the box? Since they are "software" RAID 0 arrays that were created by WIn7 32-bit after it was installed will they survive intact when I install a new version of Win7 on the base drive? My base drive is not part of a RAID setup. Will the new Win7 64-bit install recognize the two separate RAID 0 arrays automatically? I hate the idea of having to try to backup a couple of TB of data from the RAID 0 arrays (and then restore it) just to install Win7 64-bit.
Anyone know what will happen?
