Primary drive is marked as drive 0.

I built a new system w/ win 7 pro 64 and two 10,000 rpm raptor sata drives set up as a raid 0 array (C: drive). Everything was up and running before I put my old 240 GB ATA133 IDE drive (old C: now D:) in to see what util and progs I could use. Afterwards sys info and Active Disk Manage reports my raid array as disk:1 and the IDE as disk:0. Why? And does it matter?

And 2nd ?. Is there any way to remove the old boot partition on the IDE from the list of drives to image w/ sys image? I can understand the C: part (raid array) and the "system reserved" but I don't want to image the D: part (1st part on old 95 drive).

Thanks for any help!
