get rid of software raid

We are running software raid1 using MDADM on ubuntu 11.04. What's the best way to get rid of it Keeping the current system ?



I want to use hardware raid instead.



What I tried to do:
-Copied the 1disk of software raid using HDClone. Configured degraded raid array without the second disk. Then copied everything from /dev/md0 onto a spare disk /dev/sdb using dd utility. However the copy wasn't accurate so I was not able to boot. I even tried to reinstall grub but it all didnt work. What's the best way to do this procedure? Thanks
