new server & raid

Postby plutus on Thu Oct 15, 2009 6:20 pm

I have to buy a new server and the pc will have 2 HD and a raid 0
I need to set a double boot windows xp + linux mint

Is there any problem for installing the double boot? apparently it is not possible to partition the disks in raid 0...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

RAID is a bit lacking in Mint, sadly
Don't use RAID0 unless you are interested in total loss of data
I have tried it and the performance gain in real use is negligible
In the how to section there are some guides for RAID among the top ten topics

weel, I am conferging towards the idea of making a raid 1 instead of raid 0...just in case ;)

I'll take a look at your guides ;)
