    I'm looking to upgrade from XP64 to Win7, but I'm worried about if my raid settings will be intact when I do.
    Current setup:
    c: boot OS HDD (250gb)
    raid0: partitioned as e:programs and f:media & data (250gbx2)

    When I install Win7 will the raid0 remain intact & unaffected? I've always done new builds/fresh installs and never actually dealt with upgrading the OS in an existing system before so any insights would be greatly appreciated.

    Mobo bios is up to date etc.

    Hi,

    Yes, your raid0 will remain unaffected.
    Win7 setup will show you all drives and partitions when you install, and you'll have control over what's used and what's left untouched.

    Cheers,
