    Hey all :) I have 3 identical sata 2 7200 seagate barracudas. First drive is set up dual boot xp and x64 on separate partitions. 2 and 3 are now raid 0 with x64. Obviously, after seeing the performance gains I would like to move everything to the raid and keep 1 for backup.

    Is it possible to create a partition on the raid and copy image of xp onto that for dual boot raided setup (issue installing raid drivers at OS install)?

    Will it still be raid for xp partition? :confused:

    After reading another thread, I got the impression that raid drivers would be used from setup of x64 (f6 method). Is this true?

    I have a lot of valuable data on that partition (Crysis ) and would be very unhappy to lose it.

    I have looked and looked for an easy way to do this and have run into a wall. All suggestions greatly appreciated. :respect:
