I'm looking to go from Vista to W7 64. This of course will mean a clean install.
My problem: I have OS running on Raid 0 and all my data on the Raid 5. I'm using Intel's Rapid Storage software with the Embedded controller on my MB. When I wipe the raid 0 OS array, I'm pretty sure the raid 5 configuration will be gone as well!
Can I upgrade to OS W7 64 on the Raid 0 without losing what I have on Raid 5?
Backup is King, with administrator rights you can engage volumes one at a time - take your raid5 out of the picture when you reinstall; this should be fine if the stripped (raid5) drive is only for data and or paging files.
