Do newer Mobo's do RAID in a way that allows the disks to be viewed as a normal non-RAID HDD if transferred to another computer?

Do newer Mobo's do RAID in a way that allows the disks to be viewed as a normal non-RAID HDD if transferred to another computer?

I built a new PC this weekend, and one of the joys I had was to transfer my RAID 1 array to the new system with a different mobo. The disks were not recognized at all, by either the mobo (no surprise) or Windows XP.

"is it possible that RAID 1 support on my new motherboard is formatting the primary partition on each HDD in a stock standard way, and storing any RAID specific data in the separate small partition?

For RAID1, yes."
