    Move RAID 1 (2x2TB) to a new motherboard?

    Junky

      Hi everyone,

       

      I have two question about a RAID 1 configuration.

       

      1)

      I have GA-X38-DQ6 motherboard (with intel ICH9R if i'm not wrong). I have configured two 2TB drive in RAID 1 mode. This drives are for data only (OS is installed on another drive).

      Tomorrow I will change my motherboard to MSI Z77A-GD64 with intel z77 chipset.

      It's possible to configure the same raid 1 (same drives)  on the new motherboard without loosing all data? How?

       

      2)

      I use both Windows 7 and Linux. On windows exists the intel storage matrix manager software. What about Linux? What software I have to use? It's managed by the kernel?

       

      Question 1 has higher priority.

      Thanks in advance.
