Im trying to move SATA drives from one server to another that I bought at the same time a little over two years ago. The servers are nearly identical (both using the same Intel server board), except that the source server is using a 3ware RAID controller, and the destination server is using the on-board Intel RAID controller.

The drives/array arent recognized by the destination server  even in the RAID BIOS& it just doesnt see them. How do I get this array moved from the source server to the destination server intact? Im sure its possible for the simple fact that this is what disaster recovery is all about, but I can't figure out what's wrong.
