Hello,
I am puchacing a new computer that is configured for raid 0. I would like to reconfigure it for raid 1. I prefer to reinstall win 7 to get rid of the junk new machines are shipped with so OS reinstallation is not a problem. Will I need new drivers or hardware (it is a Dell XPS system).

cheers
Bob

you need not new hard drives, as we know the raid 0 is congifure with two hard drive, and raid 1 also need 2 hard drives, you just recongigure the raid array, and reinstall the windwos 7, that's OK, you'd better do a fresh format before reconfigure.

It should be fine. Just download all necessary drivers from dell.

Edit: You may want to create media disks before doing this so that you can restore to factory settings if need be.
