dmb: any of you super good with raid?
redeeman: dmb: super and super... i use it alot
dmb: redeeman, lol

dmb: i wish i could buy a real raid card
redeeman: i have never tried, i use purely linux md
dmb: redeeman, can you boot easilly with that?
redeeman: sure, allthough ofc the boot partition can only be raid1, or no raid, due to the limitations of the bios
redeeman: but your / can easily be whatever raid level
dmb: i kind of wanted to do something complicated, dual boot windows and linux on the raid
dmb: redeeman, not raid0?
redeeman: the bios does not know how to load that, no
redeeman: and m$ware certainly don't know it
dmb: i need a dedicated boot disk :)
dmb: too bad i used up all the sata slots
