Windows 7: How can I build a basic W7-Pro 64B Hardware Raid-0 System?

Thank you for the response.

But given what I would like to do, will the Cloning, Backup/Recovery options work?

Best regards,

You will have a array that works like a disk with the double size of the individual disks and you can do ALL operations you do on a disk (format, copy, install, clone etc).
The main problem is that you're going to clone a system disk from one computer and install it on another computer. One is Gateway and the other is a HP. It won't activate. You will have to insert the HP COA key to activate.

To clone the Gateway disk, that is very old and has a lot of trash, is the worst you can do.
You should install the software you need on the HP and then move your data.

Excellent reply.

I had not thought of that.

Today, I will have the POS Software Vendor move the POS Application over to the HP System.

It is currently W7-Pro-64 on a single drive.

Once there, I will try the cloning process to Raid-0.

I need to order the Raid Controller so that will be several days, most likely next week.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Best regards,

The Move to the HP is 90% complete.

The Move went well, however some 'pieces' aren't quite functional.

The POS System is working and we now have one day under our belt on the HP.

A few of the peripherals need some attention.

Our Shelf Label Printer is not operational on the HP.

The custom software that it requires needs a 'tweak' to function.

We needed to send the Printer to the Software Vendor to allow them to 'tweak' it.

It left our Store yesterday and should be back in about ten days.

I am hoping to order the Raid Controller this Friday, looking for a better price.

I'll keep the Forum Posted as we make further progress.

Best regards,
