I want to remove my hardware raid 1 I setup as cannot install Ubuntu again due to the way the partitions are mapped. My dual boot of Windows 7 and ubuntu worked fine until an update issue on Ubuntu which corrupted the OS.

I need to know if I remove the Asus hardware RAID 1 setup, will this affect the working Windows 7 OS.
I cannot preserve the Windows setup either with Clonezilla due to the RAID 1 setup also.
I hope to setup again the RAID 1 once I can install Ubuntu again.

I successfully reinstalled Ubuntu using a Ubuntu live cd (make sure you use 32/64 bit which matches your machine).

This is important otherwise it will not recognise the existing RAID setup.
