During boot press the ctrl key and start tabbing the "I", you will get in to the option ROM in there you can set the hard drives as non RAID and then exit.
Note that if you have a RAID 0 you will loose all the data on them.
Thanks for the prompt reply. Let me understand this correctly. Once I have reset to non Raid i can then, one remove my newer
hard drive, install it in the new computer, reformat it and either set as a Raid array or just a second drive, two reformat the older
hard drive left in the computer and install the backup I made with Acronis so it will function as an independent drive. I guess as a followup question to the first
is there any problems involving reformating these drives since they were in a Raid array before? Thanks again BigThor for your reply. carp
You are correct, you shouldn't have any problems. The RAID information is storage in the hard drive, with a format you should have your hard drives as good as new.
Thanks again BigThor, now I have the confidence to proceed.
I'll let you know the results. carp
