    Hi I'm planning on buying an Intel based mobo with ICHR7 southbridge and want the following config:

    * IDE drive with win xp installation in a separate partition (for image reasons not on RAID 0, because it will contain more than just the OS, and therefore hard to image)
    * 2 sata drives with Intel matrix raid (= a RAID 0 volume and a RAID 1 volume)

    I'm planning to backup my IDE win xp partition on the RAID 1 volume.
    If my IDE drive crashes, will I be able to restore (from the True Image 8 boot cd) my winxp partition onto a new IDE/SATA drive, with the image residing on the RAID 1 Volume?

    I do not expect any problems of Acronis True Image 8.0 restoring an image residing on the RAID 1 array, since Acronis True Image 8.0 supports all levels of RAID arrays along with the wide variety of modern RAID controllers.

    However, the best way to figure out is to try the software.

    Please download and install the free trial version of Acronis True Image 8.0, create Bootable Rescue CD and see how the software recognizes your RAID array and other devices.

    If you will be satisfied with the work of the trial version of Acronis True Image 8.0, please visit Acronis online store to purchase the full version of the product.
