Vista Ult. 64 - setting up SATA Raid

By Leonard J Rivera Sr. ·
I know a Sata raid needs to be setup prior to installing Vista. My Raid instructions are clear. At the time of my installation, I could not setup a raid because I only had 1 drive.

So, what if I imaged my current vista drive with something like backup exec desktop recovery - restore anywhere option?

I would of course enable the raid controller in the bios and install the drivers prior to imaging.

Then I install all 4 drives, enable 0+1 raid, then restore the image?

I want to raid my current system without having to reinstall/activate Vista and every application etc..

What are my choices? Anyone know? Is there a way to possibly do this without imaging?

Any help on the topic is greatly appreciated.

System Info: Vista Ult. 64
MB: MSI K9A2 Platinum with Promise Raid.
Maxtor 500GB Hdd (one now, soon to be 4)
