NVraid switch between same boards?

Hey

I just got my second ep-8rda6+ Pro motherboard. I want to switch the raid-0 config from my original board to the new one. Can i do that without losing my data? That means, is the raid info stored on the disks or on the nvraid controller? The original board will have to go in RMA. When it comes back i'm building a 2nd socket A system.

Thanx

I *think* that nVRAID writes the config to the disks, but I've never tried to check that idea... If it is true, then as long as the disks are kept in exactly the same order, it /should/ work. No promises though.

Someone in the 8rda6+Pro romsip mod thread posted a successful switch between the SI controller and nvraid. That means your thoughts on the matter are probably correct

I'd be a lot more surprised at a switch between the SI driver and the nVRAID driver, given that they're from different manufacturers. There doesn't appear to be a standard way of storing this info, short of writing it to the disks involved.
