My System Specs

Arrow options...


Partitions on basic disks, volumes on dynamic disks, right. Thank for the reminder.

I have never used the SB710 chipset but I would not get my hopes up very high for a consumer grade main board. If the RAID can be turned on and maintain the existing partition the system will probably not boot because Windows does not have the Fake RAID drivers. You can repair it and load them but you have to jump through hoops to get there. As noted above, make a backup.

If you want to use the Fake RAID on the mainboard you are probably better off planning for a re-install. This would be my suggestion for safest balanced with cheapest option.
