restoring image from RAID0 to single HDD? Need a reality check here, please. Currently I'm running WINXP SP2 H.E. in a RAID0 configuration using two identical WD SATA(150) 80G HDD. The MB is a Gigabyte G1975X(Intel) with Intel(R) 82801GR/GH SATA RAID Controller. Acronis TI9 (build 2,337). My questions are as follow: (1.) Can I delete my current array(losing all data - I know!) but leave my system "Raid Ready" without actually having to set up a new array? (2.) If YES, then would the two WD SATA HDD be treated by my system as two separate and independent HDD? (3.) It has been suggested to me that if I handle things correctly it should be possible to restore an image (Acronis TI9) of my current system (boot) partition containing Windows XP to Hard Drive 0 (as a single drive, not in any RAID array). This process should then make the single drive bootable into Windows. Since I didn't actually change "RAID" mode in the Gigabyte bios(only deleted the array in the Intel Matrix controller bios) that my chances are good for a successful boot after restoring the TI backup image to the single drive. What do you think? In case I didn't make myself clear - all I really want to do is be able to come out of RAID 0 so that I can use by two WD SATA HDD separately without going back into any array. I do prefer, however, to remain "RAID READY" for flexibility. So I'll remain in RAID mode. Now here's the trick. I don't want to re-install Windows XP which I only just did 10 days ago. I know you'll be tempted to advise me that I should. Please resist the temptation if there's another way. FYI: I currently have two partitions that make up my RAID0 array and the volume presented has been imaged already by TI9 several times. I look to restore only one partition of a current image, that is the Primary/Active/Bootable/C: partition containing Windows XP SP2 Am I on crack or is this possible?
