Default Re: Dual Booting With Linux in Raid

Some motherboards do include SAS RAID, but they're bloody expensive (not in the $200ish price range):

$50 SATA RAID controllers are mostly software...the problem with that is you'll need the software (really drivers) on Linux and Windows. Look for anything that works w/ Linux' dmraid driver and you should be all set. But be aware that you're not going to get much more speed out of it than software RAID built-into Linux and Windows (they can both do it inside the OS); you'll just get the ability to boot off the RAID drives. True hardware RAID controllers are faster than software RAID and don't need drivers in the OS. The OS just sees the RAID drives as one big drive...
