I have two question about a RAID 1 configuration.
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?
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.
I suggest that you check the information available on this article:
Concerning a tool to manage the RAID on Linux*, this will depend on your operating system distributor. From our side, we do not provide a tool to monitor or manage the RAID controller on Linux* based operating systems.
