Can I transfer RAID 0 array to new motherboard of same model?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm sure most if not all of you already know the Sandy Bridge issues currently affecting a fair share of us here at OCN. The solution of using different ports won't work for me as I use 7 of the 8 ports.

Being that it'll be the same exact board Gigabyte p67-UD7 > Gigabyte P67-UD7, will my hardware RAID on my two striped disks work after enabling RAID on the new replacement mobo or will i have to reformat drives to re-create array?

Yes.

They both use the same RAID controller.

...and you don't have hardware RAID. You have host-based RAID.

Thanks for the correction. And that's good to hear. Didn't really want to have to re-shuffle data around to move to new mobo. So it's as simple as activating RAID on the new mobo and it will recognize my striped drives?

Since you will be using the same Controller, the bit matrix is recognized all the same. It's as simple as plugging in your hard drives and selecting RAID in the BIOS.
