    I want to move my HDD from the raid/ata controller (IDE3) on my mobo to the standard controller (IDE1). i was wondering if i can do this without reinstalling everything. i know how to rewrite the MBR and stuff like that.

    Unless you are using it in a RAID 0 array it shouldn't be a problem at all. You may experience some strangeness in Windows but a repair should take care of this.

    I for instance, got strange errors when moving my master to slave (alone slave). Hibernation stopped working for instance.
