I have 2 HDs in a Raid0 setup, and 2 more not, Windows is not installed on the raid drives. Is there a way I can keep the info on the raid0 drives and the drive without windows, while I wipe and reinstall windows on the other drive?

Could you make it more clear? Do you have four drives, two with windows, two not??

If I understood you correctly all you have to do is boot into the harddrive you want to wipe then wipe it, when installing windows, it should ask you where you want to install windows.

yes, if you format & install windows on the primary HD the other 3 drives will keep whatever data you have on them.

Your raid array will be unchanged by formatting a drive that is not part of the array. You will need to load the raid controller driver before you can access the array from windows.
