Acronis saved me
I love Acronis. I just made a back up clone of my XPx64 machine before I tried to change the RAID ports for it's OS. Some port selections can be faster than others on the same controller. Fortunately the Intel controller is smart, it didn't mind the juxtaposition of the hhd's at all.
OS disks should always be backed up unless you enjoy taking a day plus to reload. Having a complete back up that takes less than 30 minutes gives you the freedom to experiment without concern. I literally loaded this OS over 30 times to get it optimized between the RAID, OCing, and those little software glitches that someone needs to find. Fortunately all but 2 of those loads were from clones provided by Acronis
