    Just finished my Nehalem setup. Special thanks to Tesselator, nanofrog and gugucom for PM support. Went out like this:

    Bay1: Original-HDD with Mac OS and Apps + Windows partition (Boot Camp)
    Bay 2-4: RAID0
    2nd optical bay: Time Machine

    Now I want to move Mac OS and Apps to the RAID0.

    Thinking about using CCC to copy 1:1 or using the Mac OS migration assistent.
    What would be the easiest and most secure way to do?

    Step by step info would be nice, thx.

    Very simple, use the restore function in disk utility. Pull the existing OS X disk into source and the Raid0 disk into target. and go!!!!

    OK - like this - just to be sure I got it right:
    Disk Utility (Festplatten-Dienstprogramm) -> restore -> select Macintosh HD as source -> select RAID0 as target -> go

    Anything elso to pay attention to?

    After that: deleting the data on the Macintosh HD and start from the RAID0?

    Sounds easy :)

    I would only delete the single disk when you have successfully booted from the array.
