I don’t know clonezilla, but otherwise it sounds good. You’ll have to
change the mountpoint(s) though and make you get the right drivers

Provided the OS knows how to work with your RAID adapter.

My mistake, I didn’t mean the mount points, but what gets mounted. In
your single drive situation, you probably have /dev/sdax mounted here
and there. Depending on how your RocketRAID-thingiemajig works, your
device(s) will be different.
