SA6400 - change Array_ID and LogicalDrive_ID

Hi,

Current status:
- ML3570G4;
- one SA6400;
- one array (Array_ID = "A"); one logical drive on Array_A (LogicalDrive_ID= "2") with 4 HDDs in RAID5 (SCSI IDs 0..3);
- LogicalDrive_2 contins NTFS Boot&System partition of Windows 2003 Server.

The configuration, obviously, resulted from upgrading the disk space through "copy" from OldArray to NewArray (current Array_A).

Now, adding two more disks in RAID 1+0 (SCSI IDs 4,5) results in a new array with parameters:
- Array A; LogicalDrive 1; RAID 1+0
- Array B; LogicalDrive 2; RAID 5
and the system would try to boot from the newly created array.

Question: How should I change the initial array's (RAID5) LogicalDrive ID to accomplish a configuration:
- Array A; LogicalDrive 1; RAID 5
- Array B; LogicalDrive 2; RAID 1+0
so, the system could boot from the NTFS partitioned logical drive on the RAID5 array?

Many thanks
