Raid is a pain
New computer comes with raid installed. I would like to get rid of raid permanently. The operating system is on the Hard disk. I created RESTORE TO ORIGINAL INSTALLATION Disks. Can i just change the HDD with disk managment ? I hope there is a way non destructive so the operating system and software is not erased.
Also can i use Acronis 32 bit software to mirror on a 64bit windows vista home to a 2nd HDD
Thamk you for your help

Re: Raid is a pain
Hi,
Is the raid mirrored or striped? If mirrored it should be easy enough, just remove one disk, then disable raid / enable ahci in BIOS (providing it is a chipset raid)
If it is striped, you could obtain a 3rd (4th) hard disk and use an utility like Norton Ghost to copy the raid over to the other disk.
