Intel P35 mobo, installing Win7x64 on 320 SSD, want to preserve existing RAID 1

My existing rig has a RAID 0 array of 2 HDDs for Windows 7, and a RAID 1 array of 2 HDDs for data. I bought an Intel 320 SSD. I want to replace the RAID 0 with my new Intel 320 SSD, meaning that I want to do a clean install of Windows 7 on the SSD and do away with the RAID 0. However, I want to preserve the RAID 1.

How would I go about doing this?

When you go to write W7 to the Intel drive just make sure you have the bios set to raid.

 

 

This will allow your raid 1 to show up and it will also allow your ssd to be in achi mode which is what you want.

 

 

Any single drive in an array will default to achi mode.
