    I have just installed Windows 7 64 bit. I have 2xSeagate Barracuda 7200.II 500GB hard drives. MoBo is Evga Nforce 750i SLI FTW. I want to set up Raid0. Is there any way I can do it without doing a reinstall? I know I should have set it up before installing OS.
    Thanks

    You will have to image your OS and then create the array and redeploy the OS back onto your computer. You will want to use something that can restore to dissimilar hardware because windows might not recognize the RAID array and you will have to format then.

    Thanks for the reply. Looks like it would be better to reinstall.
