There are a few files that make up the Windows registry. The following are located in %systemroot%\system32\config:
SYSTEM - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM
sam - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SAM
security - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SECURITY
SOFTWARE - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE
default - HKEY_USERS.DEFAULT
The following is located under each user profile and maps to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER when the user is logged, and the HKEY_USERS.<SID>
If you want to view and edit these files from another machine, you must copy them offline. Windows will lock these files at all times. You can them load them into the Regedit command as follows:
1. Make a temporary folder underneath your profile (HKEY_CURRENT_USER). For example, you can call it, "DEADMACHINE_SOFTWARE".
2. Select this folder. This is important, otherwise you will override data.
3. File / Load Hive...

My motherboard info said it required the drives to be identical.
You actually don't really want to mix drives when you are doing RAID. It's not so much the driver sizes, but the timings on the drives. If they are not identical in RPM, seek times, etc, you will end up with one drive that wears out faster than the other. At least, that's from my experience.
