Moving files from windows 2003 64bit server to Windows 8

I have a file server, windows 2003 64bit. This server will retire and files will be moved to a virtual machine, windows 2008 R2 of hyper-v in new windows 8 machine. The files are located in a RAID 10 with raid card.
So in this case, if I move the raid card and the disks to new Windows 8 machine, then configure the volumn to attached drive to the virtual guest(Windows 2008 R2), will NTSF preserve information(share info, security info)?

If you will be running the Virtual 2008 server, then yes the NTFS permissions will remain.

Is the raid card still supported and do you have drivers for windows 8?

We took a hard drive out of an old windows 7 server (with an integrated RAID built through the bios) and put it in another computer and the raid came through with no changes.
