hey guys, i just bought a new build and i need to clone my windows.

right now i have 3x500gb WD HDD in raid 0 with the OS HDD being striped to 235gb. what i want to do is clone that entire 235gb partition onto my new 500gb HDD.

i attempted to use windows backup and create a system image, but you can only restore from a system image, you cant use it to create a new installation.

i REALLY don't wan to use any type of cloning tool that requires booting from cd to create the clone, the problem is that raid0 needs drivers to run, i had major problems getting windows to install on it.

i want to create the clone data with windows running ( i have an extra 1tb HDD), and then boot from CD and use the clone data from the single 1tb HDD (so i dont have to deal with raid) to clone my windows to the new 500GB HDD.

and i cant figure out how to do this, help!
