G'day all, i just recently purchased a Intel 520 120GB SSD and i am planning to put into Raid 0 with the exact same SSD in my current system. Windows 8.1 is currently installed on the single drive SSD and i was doing a bit of reading around to find that setting up RAID will wipe the drives. I was thinking of imaging my OS onto a spare drive then setting up RAID on both SSDs and finally re-imaging it back onto the new Raid SSDs. If i was to go about doing that way, i would get a boot up issue due to the lack of Raid driver installed, so i was thinking may be i could install the Raid driver first then do the imaging but not exactly sure if that will work or not. This is my first time playing with RAID, so i am hoping i don't have to reinstall my OS.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-D3
SSD: 2x Intel 520 120GB (OS installed on a single SSD)
