reinstal from raid 0 to single drive

I have Vista x64 Ultimate installed on raid 0 and complete backup made
with Windows backup utility on a different drive in my pc. I decided to
reassign drives from raid and I want to reinstall system on a single
drive. Can I use the backup I have and fully restore the system? Thank
you.

Hi,

Probably not, as the hardware layer will be very different and unlikely to
be able to adapt to the single drive to a point where it's bootable. If you
are able to, you'll likely need to do an in-place upgrade to rebuild it.
