trying to move boot loader from raid 0 to ssd

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i am currently running windows 7 installed on my 64gb ssd with 2 X 500GB drives in raid 0 for storage. i was wondering if it is possible to move the boot loader that is on the raid 0 to the ssd.

i need to move the boat manager because i would like to take the current drives out and replace them with 3 X western digital black 2TB drives in raid 5.

any advice would be much appreciated.

Lolwut? The bootloader should be installed on the SSD if that's where your Win7 partition is installed.

that's what i thought to but if i remove the raid 0 drives i get an error saying no operating system found. the raid 0 also has to be the primary boot drive.
