Question Building Raid 0 - is it possible?

I have replaced a Seagate 80GB and now I have one HDD 80 GB Seagate on ITE8212 Raid PCI card and I want to connect the second one. The thing is that I reinstalled the system on the remaining HDD and everything is set up. Can I build raid0 without loosing the information? Big thanks 4 everyone that has some info on this.

Chris

Not that I am aware of.
You have to start by letting the controller build the raid0 partition from the ground up, then format the 'new' drive.

you might be able to ghost the image of your drive then set up the new "drive" and then load the image on that

Angry

Karbon It's exactly what I was thinking but I don't know if ghost is working with raid arrays, but I think it should. I have to try that huh?

I hate this when it happens.

i would imagine it would work because the image will be sent to the raid controller and the image will be installed correctly by the raid controller. Norton Ghost will see the drive as 1 drive just like any other non raid. I have ghosted a fresh xp with drivers for my machine and have wiped it once and it worked fine.

Ghost and other programs of the kind use the BIOS services for accessing the drive. As long as the controller has a boot BIOS, you will be able to image your existing drive to some other medium, build and format the array, and then write the image back to the array.
