In order to move any RAID between a different system those systems needs to have a similar RAID controllers. For example you can't move a RAID-5 created with a Highpoint Card for example to a 3WAre card later down the road without breaking/losing the raid set because their methods for creating the array is not identical and not recognized. The only way you can be sure you can move a RAID set between systems/controllers is if you are using a Software RAID created by whatever OS you are using or again by having a similar controller (same family line, not necessarily exact same controller) in both systems.

Thats the reason Im getting a RAID card :) To avoid this problem as much as possible :)
