        RAID 10 it's generally speaking. It can be 0+1 or 1+0. By default it's considered to be 1+0, but in the current case it's a 0+1.

            I'm nearly at the hardware upgrade stage so I'm revisiting RAID. Ideally. I want RAID 0 on my dual-boot-to-be W7 / Leopard (possibly Snow Leopard) sytstem (either a GA-G33-DSR2 with E6600, or GA EX58-DS4 with i7 940, and a couple of Samsung F1's). Obviously, now I'm an appliction-head, I'm not up to speed with hardware things...  I found this info. below, from Grant Pannell (thanks bro) - can anyone decode it for me...  It seems to offer the possibility of Windows hardware RAID, but, only Apple software RAID?  I've been working hard at making my hackintosh "perfect". This seems to be yet another breakthrough that hadn't been possible before...I don't know why, it's such an easy hack.  Basically, when using your SATA controller in RAID mode, both Leopard and Snow Leopard will refuse to boot with "waiting for root device" (as the device is inaccessible).  This means you can now use Hardware RAID...well for Windows/Linux at least. I am unsure if you can use a RAID volume and install Snow Leopard to it, however, you should be able to use Snow Leopard on a single drive and still keep your Windows RAID intact. Basically it means one less BIOS change each time you want to jump into OSX and that you'll be able to access files on your Windows/Linux RAID volumes without rebooting. If you really want OSX RAID, I don't see anything stopping you from using Apple's Software RAID while your SATA controller is in RAID mode.  So, how to? This isn't the most Vanilla way, I'm sure there's a better way of doing this...but I'l come up with that later.  Simply open up /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext/Contents/ and edit the Info.plist  Under the ICH10AHCI key, you can either:
