My mobod will support many different types of raid so that is not a problem. My question is about raid and the os. What would be the best way to do it. I don't want any other type of raid so don't go there. Any way should I put the os on a whole seperate drive and raid the the other two drives or should I partition the drive and do it that way? Any advice? Thanks.

If you want to implement RAID 1 (or any type of RAID) then you need to reformat your two HDD to the same exact size. No need to set partitions later. Just install the OS as is.

Why would you want raid 1? If you want performance surely you want raid 0? Raid 1 will just do an exact mirror of the 1st disk

AAAHHHHh. As I said I don't want any other raid than 1. I want the mirror. It is for security not performance.
In raid one why I would like to partition or use a separate hd for the os is if I ever have to reformat I would just reformat and not have to worry about all the docs and pics and video when doing so.

You can for sure create partitions within the Minored HDD

Well I am pretty usre that with any raid like this it sees all the hdd's as one hdd so you would have to use a partitiion for just the os but I am not sure as too reformatting the rest of the space and doing it seperatly then the os partition with a raid setup.

I currently run raid 10 (or 1+0) and am loving it. ANy time that I get any type of corruption it runs the raid utility tool which scans and corrects errors and if I lose a drive I can simply replace that drive. I am using 4 hdd's though.
