Question Cloning hard drives.

I have 2 identical systems, except when it comes to the storage hardware. In system 1, i have 3 SCSI HDD's, no RAID setup, just 3 drives, 3 partitions with a ton of data.

System 2 is setup with a SATA RAID controller with 4 HDD's and 1 partition. The SATA Controller card only allows me to make 1 primary partition and that's it, no other extended partitions.

I need to copy the 3 separate drives from system 1 to 3 partitions on system 2.

Norton Ghost does not see the SATA Drives (assuming because of the SATA Raid controller).

What can anyone suggest I do to copy the data from system 1 to system 2?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Get a big External HD and copy them over to that, then copy the ext. to the other system.

Not the easiest or fastest, but it would do.
