The update should recognize the array and treat it properly - but I'm just offering an opinion here (I haven't had time to research it).
Also, I don't have much knowlede about breaking and resetting RAID arrays. The last Iime I tried that was with W7 - and I gave up on RAID because of that experience.
Obviously, you should back all of your data to "safe" storage before starting the update - but you're running out of time here!
In short, is it worth a chance to you?
FYI - W10 must be activated BEFORE the offer ends. If not, you won't be able to activate it for free.
If you have problems with the update, the first thing to do is to open a case with Microsoft Support.
This will establish that you were attempting to upgrade before the free offer expired.
And, they may be able to help you get the upgrade sorted out.
Here's the link for that: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/contactus/
Next, try a clean boot in order to reduce the chances of failure: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows
Then attempt to install W10 again.
Another option is to attempt a clean install of W10.
To do this:
- gather up your Windows product key
- backup your data
- make an image of your system (in case you want to go back to W7)
- Use this link to create a USB drive to install Windows 10 "clean": https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10/
