It should work. If you do try, it’s worth backing up to another drive before migrating the array.

22.214.171.124 Array Migration
The disks in an array, after being removed from one system with a RAIDXpert2 controller, can be migrated to another system with a RAIDXpert2 controller. The disks and array(s) appear in the second system, in Disk Management, the BIOS Configuration Utility, and RAIDXpert2, as normal RAIDXpert2 disks and array(s).
If the disks from a RAIDXpert2 system are migrated to a non-RAIDXpert2 Windows-based system, the disks appear in Disk Management of the second system as healthy, unknown partitions. To use the disks, use Disk Management to delete the RAIDXpert2-created partitions and to create Windows partitions on the disks.
CAUTION: All data contained in a RAIDXpert2 array are lost if the RAIDXpert2 disks of the array are migrated to a non-RAIDXpert2 system.
