Dual boot Raid 0
 
Anyone have any experience with dual booting a raid 0 config? I have vista 32 bit installed already, and would like to install vista 64 in a partition, i am using nvidia raid on 790i mobo. any help would be appreciated.

I don't think you would want to partition a RAID array. I've never seen it before personally. It probably causes more problems.

Well i don't think partitioning the drive will be an issue, I'm more concerned about installing 64 with 32bit already on the 0 array and screwing up the mbr, i though about doing a fresh install on some new drives but i just don't feel like shelling out the cash for them.

When I did that, I simple made 2 seperate RAIDs with the same two drives. Boot app is not 64-but(had XP-32 and Vista64 without issue)

how do you make 2 seperate raid 0 arrays with 2 drives?

cadaveca April 21, 2009 01:49 PM

Created the RAID smaller than the full drive size...then created the second with the remaining space.:biggrin:


Intel Matrix FTW.

wouldn't recreating the raid erase all my data?

Just install vista 64' You will get a boot menu with a choice. I have 5 partitions on my raid0 array. Running xp, vista32, vista64, win7 32 and win7 64.

Ok just to be clear, partition the drive install vista that's it? one more question Squeetard what was the original OS you had installed before your added the others.
