I have the windows 7 boot partition on a raid array that has been having some serious issues lately. The current system is installed on a separate disk, however the boot partition is on the aforementioned array.

Everything works fine as it is, but in case they fail, what do I need to do to to move said partition to the working drive and just disconnect the failing ones?

What RAID configuration is it? – Ali Jan 10 '13 at 14:24

You can try to create/move Windows 7 boot related files to another disk/partition using this guide:

Move Windows 7 boot files to another drive.

Please post back if it has worked for you - boot sequence is always:

first disk, active partition (on UEFI -> firmware boot manager, Windows boot manager)
