Solved RAID 1 New System Build Tags: NAS / RAID Configuration Hard Drives Build Storage Last response: November 30, 2009 1:46 PM in Storage Share BlueCat57 November 29, 2009 5:11:07 PM I'm building a new system with two hard drives that I plan to set up in a RAID 1 configuration. Do I set up the RAID 1 array before I install the OS? I'll be using Windows 7 Ultimate. If before the OS installation, will that affect the installation speed? If one of the drives fails during installation do I start over or keep going and fix the failed drive later?
