    Red face SATA Raid 0 motherboard swap

    Hi
    I am thinking of upgrading my trusty MSI 865PE MB -(2 serial ata drives striped Raid0 win XP pro) with a new 965 chipset. Core2 board probably an MSI 965neo.

    Is the ICH8 chipset on the new board backward compatable with the old ICH7 so I can just swap the board/ cpu without backing it all up, reformating the drives reinstalling winXP etc (what a pain)

    Thanks in advance
    Kev

    Usually, attempting to migrate an array made on one controller over to another is a recipe for disaster... Can't see a reason why it wouldn't workmind you, but I would still backup all the critical stuff before attemptng it tbh.

    Try it by all means, but I'd be staggered it if worked. You really should backup regardless, and certainly when using a new board you should be reinstalling Windows - you're pretty much guarenteed to run into problems somewhere down the line otherwise.
