Can I have raid on dual boot system of Windows 7 and Mac?
  

The below mentioned is the computer configuration of mine.
Quote:
Motherboard
ASUS 1155 P8P67-M PRO REV 3.0 M-ATX

CPU
Intel Sandybridge i5-2500 Core i5 Quad-Core Processor (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache, Socket 1155)

Ram
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9B 8GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3 Vengeance Memory ? Blue

PSU
300W

HDD
1x 80 GB - Clean
1x 160 GB - Windows Xp Installed
And maybe a 250 GB with windows 7 installed on it.

Operating System
Mac OS x Snow Leopard V10.6 (Main OS)
Windows 7 Home Premium (Secondary OS)
Windows Xp (Third Option)
What will be the result if I have used the 250GB hard disk with the Windows 7. On the rest of hard drive I am looking to install Mac OS. Also I am looking to use raid on the system of mine. Let me know if you are having any idea on this particular matter.

I have searched on the internet and I have managed to get the following thing. There is difference between the open instruction set which is used by the Apple kernel and closed instruction which is used by the Windows kernel will need the different hardware requirements. There will be an issue with the processor which are used for the different operating system. So I think it seems to quite difficult to get the above mentioned thing over here.

Well I don?t agree with you . Mac as well as Windows can run on the same CPU so there will not be issue associated with CPU.

To make the thing working for you I am suggesting that you should do the initial setup by using FAT32 partition then you have to make RAID (of FAT32). After that you have to use the Windows installer to convert the FAT32 format into NTFS. The windows installer is aware of NTFS and it will convert the existing partition.

I don?t think so the thing which I am looking for is achievable. I looking to stick with Windows only rather than that of making dual setup. One will be able to make the thing by paying some extra money.
