So now the OS is running on its own drive separate from the raid, important data is now being stored on a raid 5 with 4 drives using a hardware based raid controller card. I've also made a backup of the new install and will be sending a copy to an external and to their amazon s3 account for backup. Can you suggest a better way to set it up then what i've done? I have time still to change the setup before I have to put this back into the prod environment.

I figured it wouldn't be possible, I just thought I would make sure. The machine wasn't one I built, It was in a raid 5 with only 3 drives and it was using a built in MB raid. The OS was installed to the raid and their data was saved there as well, added a new drive to the array and after a rebuild nothing, no booting into windows (none of the recovery options worked either). So there was no way I could backup AD to restore it to a new install. The OS's recovery backup happened to be on the raid on a separate partition. Essentially it was a head meet wall moment when I found this out.

I figured it was probably not possible
