Re: Dual Boot Vista64/XP32 with separate Raid 0 for storage
What you are proposing with a RAID 0 array will likely lead to disastrous
loss of all the data on your RAID 0 array.
If you are going to create a RAID 0 array you should have a third hard drive
for storing data. RAID 0 arrays are easily corrupted and then they are
totally trashed, especially in the hands of inexperienced users, and many
experienced users as well.
The real world benefits of a RAID 0 array, as opposed to technical
read/write measurements, are probably imaginary but it is an interesting
Next year solid state drives may be available at bargain prices anyway,
making that RAID 0 thing pointless.
IMHO if you want to dual boot in such a set-up it might be safer to install
another OS on a fourth hard drive and use the computer bios to select that
hard drive at boot time.
