Vista RAID0 after install?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The company I'm ordering my new PC from, asks 20euros (which is about $30 I think) to put my new PC in RAID0. I first wanted to completely assemble it myself but if I do it that way I can't get any warranty on the system :s.
So I already have to pay 50 euros to get it assembled and installed (ew..) and then an additional 20 euros to put it in RAID0. Can the drives be put into RAID0 after vista installation or is this impossible? If it's possible then I'm not gonna throw my money in their hands for a 1 min chore.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, but you'll have to reinstall Vista.

Sadly, no. You must format your drives before they go into a RAID 0.
Would you be able to get the Vista instillation disc from them after they install it on your computer, then setup the RAID 0 yourself?
