We have a  Windows 2012R2 hyper V host. I was shock to find out my predecessor didn't set up RAID on it even it is equipped with a hardware RAID controller. Currently the OS is running on a single disk without any RAID. My plan is to clone the single disk to network drive and then put in two new hard disks to build a hardware RAID1. Then clone the disk from network to the RAID1 disk. Would it work?
