2 Vista Installs..Need to move MBR
I installed vista onto my old hdd and then installed it onto a RAID 5.

I couldn't do a clean install onto the RAID, because vista wouldn't accept
my drivers.

Therefore I had to install from within the old hdd containing vista, and
that is where the master boot record was built.

I want to boot up from my clearly faster RAID config. instead. Is there a
way I can move the Master Boot Record onto the RAID?

Hi Brian,

You'd have to do a repair, but the problem would remain. You need a RAID
driver that Vista will recognize and use. Best source should be the
motherboard manufacturer.
