I have machines with Matrix Storage and "INTEL rapid storage technology" RAID support. My problem is that if a board or OS quits, I can't always take a RAID 1 set or one of a set to another machine and use it normally. I want several machines and RAID 1 sets that are interchangeable. If a board is described as implementing "INTEL Rapid Storage Technology", does that tell the whole story on portability of RAID 1 as pairs or as singles?
Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.
In this case, there are two ways for you to move a RAID from a system to another:
- If the RAID array contains data only (no OS) and the other machine/chipset supports RAID 1.
- If the RAID array contains an OS, the other machine where you want to move the RAID to, must be identical (same motherboard) and must have the same BIOS configuration.
Please don't hesitate in replying to this post if you need further assistance.
