Alright, so I'm using a 160gb and a 250gb both mirrored with nvraid through my motherboard. I've tried several ways to copy an IDE drive onto my 1st raid array with no success. My latest attempt was to boot off the 160, load the IDE as another drive, clone the IDE to the 250 and it ends up breaking my raid, windows starts to see 2 x 250gb disk drives. It basically seperates the drives so that they are independant which in turn on bootup, leaves my Raid frozen trying to find it's 2 arrays. I can load windows if I unplug the 250gb drives and reconnect them later getting a degraded error message. From there I enter Nvraid utility on bootup and remake the 250gb array leaving the drive blank and back at square one. An unrelated problem, I can't boot up to the IDE drive because it's from another computer and the new pc I've built doesn't want to boot up to anything that wasn't made by itself. What other options do I have or how can I clone a single IDE drive to a raid array without it breaking?
