    I'm building a new PC. I'd like to run both XP Pro & Vista Ultimate on it. I'd like to have a XP Pro image & a Vista image that I can boot to as opposed to the traditional Dual Boot setup. I also would like to have my OS HDD in a RAID 1 Array as an addition safeguard. (I will be using other tradition backup solutions) The main question is will the XP & Vista FD-ISR images have any problems &/or issues with a RAID 1 Array? Will the restored image(s) be properly mirrored in the rebuilt RAID 1 Array? I'll be using a RAID card, probably a PCI version. The HDDs will be WD 150gb Raptors. And the mainboard an EVGA 680i MB. Thanks for your help. :cool:

    It works fine with Raid 0. If your raid 1 array looks and acts like a regular c: drive it should be fine.

    I take it from your reply that you gave tried this with a RAID 0 setup, but not a RAID 1 setup? o_O

    Then do you know anyone running the app in a RAID 1 Array? I'd like the benefit of their experience. THX.
