Upgrading Motherboard with Raid0 Setup
Mar 31, 2012, 1:48 PM
I've been using an old Asus board with Sli, now that I upgraded my VGA I want to put in a faster MSI board.
I'm running winXP Home Edition, installed on my SSD. RAID0 setup is all of my backup and games.
Will I lose my RAID0 configuration and all info on it?
Will my SSD (JBOD) lose anything?
Also, is there any extra things I should do before changing? Any driver(s) to uninstall or just let it go?

I think that unless the raid controlling chipset is NOT the same, you will most likely loose your data and have to redo your raid setup.
When staying with the same family (p55->p55 or Z68 ->z68) you probably will be OK, I've had a problem with just the version (same chipset) braking the array.

SSD set to JBOD?
But since it is set in RAID, but NOT part of an array, it should be okay.
What Chief said about the HDDs.
And, with an SSD, you should upgrade to Windows 7. XP doesn't support TRIM, a big factor or SSDs.
