What happens to hardware raid if you switch mainboard

Hello,

 

I want to switch my Motherboard, but have BIOS Raid Config on my old one.

Can I just replace thr board switch on raid and the accual raid information is stored on the drives.

Or is the Raid config stored on the Mainboard and I will loose my data then?

The raid most likely needs to be rebuilt thus meaning all data will be lost

If it is from one Intel board to another Intel board it will most likely be fine. If it is from Intel to AMD I dont know

 

I move a Raid 0 from a Asus P9X79 to a Asus Strix Z270-f no issues, but make a backup if the data is importent

I switched from an Asrock Z390 to a Gigabyte Z390 and had to nuke my raid array. It would not detect as raid by the new board. Not sure about AMD boards, but it should be the same. Probably have to rebuild it, the raid is set by the motherboard chipset.

I used windows to make striped raid and i got new cpu/mobo/ram/boot ssd and it recognized it and was fine. But if u didnt use windows to make it idk.

I have 2 M.2 ssds in raid 0 as my boot drive and I've reset my bios/flashed it multiple times and all I have to do is switch it to RAID mode, restart and the Windows boot manager shows up. I don't know if this applies for you though because I had to install drivers onto them because they are boot drives and that might give the bios some way of identifying them but it shouldn't do anything to the drives as long as you don't make a new array or anything so you could just try.
