Gregrocker - I believe raid0 only allows for quicker access when working with 2 duplicat drives. I have 150GB on HD1 and 150GB on HD2. Since I did not create Raid1 or Mirror, I really need the backup images. And since I bought a larger HD to replace HD1, I no longer need Raid0, as HD2 and the new HD are no longer equal in size.
Since I have Windows 7 Ultimate, I think I installed it from within windows 7. I went into the bios and I have the option to delete the raid0 from HD2, but then I'd lose my data, including the backup image that is stored there.
I guess I still need to be able to access the backup image from HD2. My solution around is to put the original HD1 back and then create a backup image onto an external usb HD. And hopefully after I put the new HD in, I can boot off from the repair cd and have the external usb HD be recognized and accessible so I can write the image onto the new HD.
