I have a PC running Windows 7 Home Premium in a RAID 1 configuration (using Intel Rapid Storage Technology software to create and maintain the RAID) with two WD 1 TB drives. I want to upgrade the drives with SSDs. I have several questions if you would be kind enough to answer.
- Will Windows 7 Home Premium accept and operate the new 1 TB SSD? or do I need a special driver as someone else has suggested to me.
- Can I just pull out one of the WD hard drives and replace with an SSD? Do I have to format the SSD first? Will the RAID populate the SSD with everything on the operating WD drive including the boot sector and OS?
- Can I then buy an additional SSD and repeat the process?
- If I can get that to work, I then want to upgrade the whole thing to Windows 10. Are there any problems running Windows 10 upgrade with the SSDs in a RAID 1 configuration?
