This must be a very basic question but I'm suprised I cannot find any thread in this forum.
BTW : CS5 under Windows 7-64 runs flawlessly on a trial setup with 1 x 7200 rpm disk only.
I am stunned what my system can do (*) even with this inferior ( trial ) disk setup.
However, when trying to install W7 for 3 x 300 GB 10 k Raptors in RAID 0 ( SATA II ports ), Windows Setup refuses to install.
It says " unable to install on this dynamic volume ".
I was/am under the impression that RAID 0 is only possible on dynamic disks, so I made the Raptors ( on an existing W7-64 installation ) dynamic and set the the disks in Disk Management as " striped ".
All Raptors are properly recognised as dynamic and striped in Disk Management.
As a cause for the W7 installation failure, a search on the internet learned me that dynamic disks are only useable in the W7 installation that made the disks dynamic.
This brings me in a Catch 22 situation.
How could I convert the Raptors from basic to dynamic in a W7 installation that is not yet there ?
Obviously I do miss something major.
In PPBM5 I see many R0 configs, how was it done ?
Thanks for any help.
