Restore system drive to different disk RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to move my C: drive away from a raid controller with RAID 1 on to a new single SATA drive. My plan is to do a full system backup to a USB drive, shut down the system, swap out hardrives so that the new SATA drive is the boot device,  boot from the Vista install DVD, then restore the system from the backup.

    Shouldn't this work? I done a similar operation of migrating a SATA system drive to a SATA larger drive on the same drive port using using a system backup,
