My assumption was that Gene will set up two new disks in an
mdadm RAID 1, install a new system to them, and thus be able to
fall back to his old system with only a reboot.

Then, after some weeks or months of contentment with his new
disks, the old ones will get wiped and turned into backup
storage or something similar.
