comment Windows System image to remove raid
Yes so long as I change it back before I reboot ! I did check it on the imaged copy but I guess i was reading a temp rescue registry hive rather than the one in the image.

comment Windows System image to remove raid
I can't enable AHCI before I image the drive because the boot drive is part of the raid set. The restored image has the MSAHCI set in the registry, but as you said - no driver. Looks like it's re-install time!
