I think I found a recipe that will work. the only thing I need now is to match the uuid values in the old mdadm.conf to the partitions that constitute the arrays, so I get the order correct. (I have figured out which partitions go to each array as they are of different size (4 partitions of exactly same size in each array))
can I just assume that the new names were given in the same order as before? (hda->sda, hdb->sdb, ... sda->sdd, etc.) or is the partition that qtparted reads an ext3 filesystem the first one? the old partitions were included alphabetically in the arrays
do I risk irreversibly harming my arrays if I get this wrong?
