    It depends what storage software was used - Symantec Storage foundation should allow the import of the disks, and Windows has a cut down version of same software.  However, I'd be more inclined to trust something like if the data is important to you.

    You need to have the same controller
    RAID 0 has no redundancy, so you need all the disks to be working,otherwise you loose ALL data.

    DO you have backups ?

    What died on the server, the motherboard ? te Controller ?

    I hope this helps !

    Depends what happened on the first server.

    The drives need to be put in exactly the same locations as the original
