You need 2+ drives for RAID 0. The rest will work, provided you have the required cables.
Hmm, ok. Are you sure about a raid 0 requiring at least two drives? Interesting because Dell is letting me order it with a single 500gb drive configured with raid 0. I'm getting this system with 4 hot plug bays so I'm assuming that should be enough.
Edit; just found this page: http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/perf/...eLevel0-c.html
perhaps the Perc 6/i is one of those types of controllers that allows it.
The reason I even suggsted raid 0 is because I didn't see any option to run disks in no-raid with this controller, so I thought I could get away with it by having a raid 0 of a single drive.
What controller do you have it on? If you're using Intel ICH8+ you can move your raid 0 array aswell. I am not sure what you are talking about. 500GB drive for Raid 1? You need at minimum 2 drives for raid 1 to work at all.
Sorry, upon reading my question I completely left out important information: The system I'm moving the drives from has no RAID at all.
That system is currently setup like this: Two drives, one 80gb SATA drive for the OS, a 500GB drive which is where I keep all important information. My plan was to buy a second
500gb drive for a RAID 1 in the new system. Keep the 80gig drive I have now, and throw that in as RAID 0.
So again, old setup:
Drive #1: 80gb SATA (OS drive)
Drive #2: 500gb SATA (data and content)
Want to turn that setup into:
Drive #1: 80gb SATA (OS drive) (Raid 0)
Drive #2: 500gb SATA (RAID 1)
Drive #3: 500gb SATA (RAID 1)
