Default Help with Raid 0

Hi, I currently have a 250gig Seagate drive with two paritions on it. The drive was

overheating and hanging so I put a fan on it + I have 5 fans in my case so cooling is

good. I was afraid of hdd failing so im getting two WD Caviar Black 500 gig and

putting them on raid 0. My question is after I create my raid array, can I clone the 250 gig

hdd onto my raid setup? How will loading raid drivers work ? thanks

Yes you can.

Just boot to your 250, install the raid drivers right in the OS. Set up the Raid 0 and clone the drive, unplug the 250 and boot to the raid, done. Drivers will be found and installed.
