Migrating Intel RAID
 
So I'm going to be moving some RAID1 arrays (3 to be exact) from an ICH9R to a P67 and was just curious if there's any way to do it without any data loss?

I'd rather not have to move all the data elsewhere and transfer it back.

It should work...

... but how, I don't know off hand. I haven't had to do it... yet.

back up before any migration ....fail save

get current driver p67 rst f6 to load on install of OS

Theoretically though, since it's RAID1, both drives should have identical information.

As such, I know if I make the RAID using RST within Windows, there's an option to "keep data from x drive". Perhaps that'll work, but I guess I should really copy everything elsewhere first.

I do have a RAID10 on a LSI card of 1.8TB which might be sufficient, along with another 1TB or so on my desktop. It's just going to be a time consuming operation...

In my ideal world, I'd just plug the drives in and it would "remember" that it's RAID1 and be on my way :haha: I'm guessing it won't work like that though.

I recently moved my RAID0 array from my P5Q (ICH10R) to a P67 board. As soon as I set the storage mode to raid, everything was just as it was on the old board. No data loss, no headaches. :biggrin:

:shok: That simple?! Amazing. I hope it works out the same for me too then.

Intels ICHR controller is the same across ALL boards and nothing changes.

Its the one beauty of running a Intel SoftRAID setup :)

That's what I expected
