Right. The upgrade should not need to modify anything in the boot loader and can't modify any BIOS options.

Nope. Doesn't matter. UEFI supports booting from both GPT partitions, as well as MBR partitions. The upgrade will also not change any of those properties in either the BIOS/UEFI interface, or the drive you are booting from.

RAID may have been the default setting from the manufacturer. The controller can be in RAID mode without having any RAID arrays configured.
