Raid 0 Configuration Question

Threaded View

I am currently using a Western Digital 120GB ATA 133 hard drive. I
have my operating system and programs on the drive. I use Norton Ghost
to keep Ghost images of the drive in case of a crash or failure. I
have a Gigabyte motherboard that has 2 SATA controllers with raid
onboard. I am thinking of trying a Raid 0 configuration for the first
time. I just bought 2 Maxtor 80GB Sata-150 drives. I was wondering if
the ghost image I have could be imaged on to the future Raid 0
configured Maxtor Sata drives? Or will I have to install everything
from the beginning (operating system, and programs)? Any advice would
be appreciated.

Thank you!

I wouldn't recommend it. Apart from the fact that there are a lot of
different drivers needed for booting from a SATA disk, the image of your
  120GB HDD is (of course) 120GB (the image file doesn't have to be that
large, but the partition that will be restored is), and might couse
trouble on the SATA disks.
