1. Yes you need to set up the array before installing windows
2. Once the array is setup, you just install everything just like normal
3. Just use the 1TB drive as any normal internal drive for storage
4. if you ever add another 1TB drive, it will need to be wiped first before setting it up in a raid-0 array with another one. You will set it up just like the first, make a new raid array using the two 1TB together, windows will see each raid-0 array as 1 hard drive not separate ones.
