RAID migration
I would like to migrate my system from one SATA disk to a RAID 5 array of
three disks. Unfortunately, however, in the BIOS, prior to installing the
OS, Vista x64 Home Premium, I left the SATA Mode at IDE, the defulat
setting.

Now, when I change the SATA Mode to RAID as is required to setup a RAID
array, I cannot successfully load Vista. It dies with a BSOD. Evidently,
it notices the change and not having the proper driver it is unable to boot.

Does anyone know of a way to load the appropriate RAID driver so that the OS
is happy? If this is not possible, the only solution I can think of is to
make the BIOS change and then reinstall Vista. This, of course, is a pain,
which I would like to avoid if at all possible.

-Todd

Re: RAID migration
Hi Todd,

You'd have to do a reinstall using the proper RAID driver.
