Re:W2K SERVER RAID5 = PROCEED WITH EXTREME CAUTION!

Windows NT, 2000 and beyond don't "move." Consult the Windows 2000 Resource on how to save the Stipe information.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/en/server/help/dm_restore.htm for instance.

But such changes can be problematic with such either OLD 200 MEGABYTE drives (I'd not do this!) since the risk is too great for such a small drive. If you meant a 200 GIGABYTE drive, then an issue arises about 42-bit LBA support in the BIOS and the OS.

Booting from the SCSI RAID annoys most since the software RAID means that to boot from said disk set has many issues I will write more about later. To boot from a HARDWARE RAID is another kettle of fish and you get to read the manual as to how that is done.

Tell a little more?

I am sorry, it is a 200 GB hard drive (IBM)

Tell more about the hardware configuration and the setup person...

Such setups can be stressful for the new IT staff. I've seen perfectly good Hardware RAID get tossed out because it required an afternoon of reading the manual, planning a setup and more time than some will allow.

A short detail of what is there can give the forum an image of what you are dealing with.
