HYPER-V Machine

I think i know the answer but just to be sure..here we go...

I am running Server 2008 enterprize box as a HYPER-V Host Machine....

I have a C Drive mirrored
I have a D Drive Raid 5

All the Virtual PC files (.VHD) reside on the D: Drive...

I want to make the D Drive bigger in size so i purchased Bigger Drives then what is currently in the system...so in order to make D bigger I planned on doing the following steps...

1) shutdown all virtual PC`s.
2) Transfer .VHD Files from current D Drive to storage location..
3) wipe out D Drive and Raid configuration.
4 Replace with New Bigger Drives and make Raid 5 Volume.
5)create same folder structure and then put .VHD files back in same location...
6) turn on hyper-v and fire up virtual pc`s...

Question...

1)WIll this work without any issues meaning i should be able to do the above steps and the virtual machines should just work again as before...is this correct????

2)DOes anyone see any issues doing it this way or problems i might occur?

3)Is there a better way of doing THis?

Please explain.....

any help is appreciated
