As far as I remember, it was not recommended to place your /boot and
/bin and /usr/bin on a software RAID, as if the RAID fails, you will
not have access to the tools and the boot images.

So, before you move on, create some small partition(s) to hold them.
After that just copying everything should be OK.

Never done this with RAID, but I needed to replace a drive, and it just
worked.
