Every system has a different way of setting up a RAID, and even if You had 2 identical motherboards to use, the RAID would need to be re-initialized on the new system. It might be possible with an expensive hardware RAID card, or with an external enclosure that turns disks into a RAID and has a single connection like SATA or USB back to the PC.
