Hello All, Please forgive me if this is an often discussed problem, I searched briefly, but didn't find answers. I built my first system about 3 years ago from a new Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard with an AMD A64 X2 4400+ Athalon processor. I also installed 2 western Digital 250GB SATA hard drives. I configured the drives into a RAID 0Stripe array. I installed Windows XP Home Edition (currently upgraded to SP3), and the system worked pretty well with just few problems for a long time. Last weekend I tried to start the system, bit it failed the POST. I decided to rebuild and upgrade the system. I bought and installed an Intel DG45ID motherboard and an Intel Q8200 Core 2 Quad processor along with 4GB of memory. After setting up some BIOS options on the new system, I entered the RAID set up utility, but before I completed the RAID Volume setup, the system warned me that completing the operation would erase all data on the existing drives, so I escaped before completing the task. I would like to know if there is a way to get the new system to boot from my existing hard drives or if it is possible to back up and restore the data from my existing dives.
