RAID 0 from XP to 7 PRO
My XP system died and I want to migrate my RAID 0 drives to my new Windows 7 PRO system. Does anyone know how to do this without losing the data on the drives?
A <a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/dm_striped_volume.mspx?mfr=true”>striped (RAID 0) volume created using dynamic disks</a> through the Windows Disk Management Console can be moved from a Windows XP system to a Windows 7 system. The TechNet article <a href=”http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753750.aspx”>Move Disks to Another Computer</a> outlines the process of moving disks from one computer to another.
RAID 0 arrays created on a RAID controller contain configuration information which is often specific to the RAID controller or RAID controller manufacturer. For more information on moving a RAID 0 array from a RAID controller to a new controller contact the hardware manufacturer for further information. As an example, information on moving a RAID array from one Intel chipset to another is provided by Intel in the article <a href=”http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/sb/CS-022435.htm”>Can I move my RAID volume to another system and access the data?</a>
