    Move RAID 5 from Intel Matrix ICH8R Motherboard to New Intel Rapid Storage Motherboard

    Skurvy_Pirate

      I am about to upgrade from my Abit AB9 Pro P965 motherboard to a new P67 motherboard. I want to keep my raid intact that I have currently which is a 3 disc (1TB each) RAID 5 array on the motherboards onboard RAID controller (Intel ICH8R).

       

      Would I be able to plug the drives into the new motherboard (same SATA slot numbers) and have the newer Intel Rapid Storage RAID controller recognize it? If not, is there anything I can do to make the migration (with data) work? The RAID is just storage and does not contain the OS.

       

      Thanks!
