Help teach me about RAID - Page 4

post #31 of 35
PhireX... As you seem to be somewhat experienced w/ RAID, what kind of solution do you use to manage it? Hardware? Software? What type? Any problems? I've been reading up on nVidia's onboard RAID solution and based on the posts at http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/image-vp511756.html, it doesn't look too solid.

If i decide to set up a RAID, would I be able to put both windows and linux on it? I know you said it shows up as just 1 drive under windows, so could I multi-part it and put several OS's on there? and keep the performance enhancements? IF so, I might just be in the market for another 250gb drive.

Yes. You will just need to create separate partitions on the array and make sure the drivers are installed to recognize the RAID in each OS.

Thanks DuckieHo. I'll be looking into this in the near future. +rep to you

Hopefully some of you RAID experts are still watching this thread...


I want to setup a RAID 0 with a seperate hard drive not in the array. For example, 2x250GB HDD's in RAID 0 and a single 250GB HDD not in array. Is this possible? I am wanting to put the OS and my games in/on the array and then have the "lonely" drive just used for storage. Would this even work at all or maybe even degrade performance?
