Good day all!
I am currently running two 750GB Seagate drives in a RAID-1 setup. My computer is a laptop but has two HDD SATA III bays. Sometime next week I will be getting a 1TB Samsung 850 Pro, and I am looking forward to that, believe me.
My question is: at what point should I change my BIOS setting from RAID to AHCI? Should I do it prior to migrating the drive image to the SSD? I assume so, since I don't even know if I can clone a RAID-1 disk (I doubt it). Should I just change from RAID to AHCI, lose my array, remove one HDD, and then clone to the SSD in the second bay? That would seem to make sense and would even save me the trouble of buying an additional SATA to USB adapter.
Anyone ever attempt something like this before? I would be happy to hear any suggestions.
