Trying to convert a basic disk to RAID-1 using ghost
Posted on 2007-08-10
I am trying to convert a basic disk to a 2-drive RAID-1 configuration. I have a clone of my data on an IDE drive, and now I want to move it back to my SATA drives once I configure them as RAID-1. If necessary, I should be able to make partition images of each of my 3 partitions to my IDE backup. I am using ghost 2003 to clone drives and make images. I assume I can't just do a disk clone from an IDE drive to a RAID-1 container. I also assume that I can't really copy the partitions over, because the data might be there but it wouldn't be bootable. The server I am working on is running SBS 2003. I have the OS disks and a tape backup to restore in a worst-case scenario.
What do I need to do to make this conversion work?
