I'm sure that you guys get asked questions related to this all the time, but I have searched the forums and did not find my answer.
I was wondering (if it was at all possible) to run a software RAID 0 array using striped volumes on my system. I have 2 hard drives of the same type and capacity, and one is booting to Windows (though, I am willing to do a fresh install). I also am using Windows 7 Home Premium.
So... if it is at ALL possible, how would I go about doing this (and before anyone asks why I don't just do a hardware configuration, it's because I am using a laptop).
Thanks for any help, and sorry for any noobish-ness.
Longer answer: I spent ages recently looking into doing just what you're talking about. You can't software RAID the system partition (you can use diskpart to create a striped array but windows won't install onto it) as the BIOS can't read a software RAID to boot the OS (including the software that does the RAID management).
Your only option is to create a partition for the OS and then to RAID 0 what you can of the rest of the disks (resulting in 3 logical disks). Which to me totally defeated the point of having RAID 0.
