We're running Windows 2003 Standard with a single hard drive right now. We want to keep the data that's on there right now. We know once we put a raid controller in this server, we will lose our data on drive 0.

My question is if we Ghost this main drive, configure the raid, then restore the image to the raid array, does anybody know for certain if it will it work or not? We would obviously be on the new disk controller, so I'm wondering if Windows and/or Norton Ghost will allow this or not. If anybody wants to see a screenshot of our drives right now, you can view it at the following link:
