    If the array is degraded you only need to reformat. As long as the hardware remains the same, no problem with chucking a ghost image back on... I have crappy servers, have done it many times

    I do this a lot with Bart PE by adding RAID and NIC drivers periodically as and when I come across hardware which it won't see.
    thats cos barts pe is still windows. Ive used promise controllers and i think even the controllers ih hp servers work quite happily in dos mode so by extension in ghost. Granted its all been ide/sata rather than scsi but ive never had a problem ghosting from raid controllers other than it can be very slow and quicker to shove the drive in a desktop pc rather than a server

    This is why I'd rather use Bart PE. It's really simple to update its driver database and it works as fast (if not faster) than in Windows itself as nothing else is running. Just fast data transfer.
