Hello all,
I have a Acer M7720 workstation, inside i had installed FastTrak TX2650 Hardware RAID card and setup a RAID 5 Array.
Now the problem is that the motherboard dead yesterday, and the service center told me i had to replace the motherboard.
Will all data inside the RAID will lost after i change the mother board?or any way prevent me to kiss my data goodbye?

You should not lose your data. You will likely have to configure the BIOS on the new board to see the RAID. And you will have to load the drivers for the motherboard and any new devices on it (e.g., sound, LAN).
