Default copy OS to RAID array

Its been a while since I posted here.
Anyway, I have Windows 7 RC installed on an 80gb PATA hard drive, and I just installed 3 new hard drives in RAID0, but do not have the Windows 7 install disk anymore. What I need to do is copy the partition from the old Hard drive onto the RAID array. How can I do this? I have tried booting into various linux distro's off a flash drive to use fdisk to do it but I cannot get them to recognize the RAID. Any ideas are welcome. thanks.

EDIT: All I need to do is get linux or some bootable partman to detect my hardware RAID configuration, but that is proving a lot harder than it sounds. If anyone knows where I can get sb750 linux raid drivers, or any other way, please let me know.

Default Re: copy OS to RAID array

It's likely that you will only be able to use popular Linux distro's like U with RAID. I know it's a stupid question, but did you check your board's manufacturer's website?
