    Migration from SATA HDD on LSI Controller to SSD

    ruined

      Hi,

       

      I am looking at migrating a Windows 2008 Server from a SATA HDD to a 330/520 SSD.

       

      The issue I have is that the SATA HDD is connected via a LSI 9260 SAS controller (it's part of a failed Raid 1 array which we want to migrate to an single SSD).

       

      I have read that the SSD Migration software will ignore any drives connected to a raid controller ?

       

      What is the best practice for migrating the O/S data to the SSD in this scenario as I would like to use the SSD in the SAS controller (jbod mode) but migrate the data, rather than fresh reinstall or having the SSD plugged into the internal SATA (2u rackmount with no internal bays).

       

      Plugging the drive internally while migrating wouldn't be an issue, it just can't live their indefinitely

       

      Any advice would be appreciated.
