My System Specs

Default RAID Help with Imaging

Ok I will keep this short
I want to Strip 2 120GB OCZ SSD's.
issue already have one fully loaded with my system.

I want to image it to the 2 drives when they are in raid.

Biggest issue. I have worked professionally on computers for 6 years but have never I mean NEVER even touched a raided system.

So I have a Crosshair V and want to make this work.

Should I imaged the system to my 2TB then Format the 2 drives?
Then how do I get them into a raid setup I know It should be easy in the bios.

After they are in a raid setup how do I image over from the 2TB should I use Norton Ghost and does it have support to image to the raided drives?

Thanks so much

First use acronis true image to make an image and save it to your data drive, then plug both SSDs in and run the raid setup in your bios, select striped (raid 0) and leave everything to the default values, it will format the drives for you. Then just fire up acronis and move the image on to your now created raid array.

I haven't used acronis in years, look up tutorials on youtube to see what they recommend.
