I am upgrading from Windows 7 32-bit to 64 bit. I have an OS drive and a RAID 1 data drive array consisting of two 1.5TB drives. I'm wondering how it works when I install a new OS and try to attach the RAID 1 data drives. It is using Intel Rapid Storage 9.5xxxx. How do I install the RAID driver without it trying to erase my existing data?
Both windows 7 32 and 64 bit have drivers for Intel RAID but you may choose to load newer drivers neither way will erase your data unless you format the wrong drive or delete it in the Intel RAID BIOS.
