Default Highpoint Raid Card Question!

I have a HighPoint ROCKETRAID2220 PCI-X SATA II and its setup in RAID 5 . My Operating System is set up on another HD that is connected directly to the mobo. I have windows XP as my operating system and was wanting to upgrade it to windows 2003 server.

Is it possible to keep the data intact on the raid card and have the OS HD formated and reinstalled with the new OS. Then just install the driver for the raid card in windows so I can detect it and utilize it with no data loss?

The raid card has different harddrives connected to it with your data I assume? Than yes and no. You can keep the data on the other harddrives and just format the one connected to the mobo, but any programs installed will need to be reinstalled on the new OS.
