There were some people on this forums who were stating that if you have OSX + Windows on a same or separate drives installed and also have a software raid running in OSX, Windows will not boot and will require a separate SATA or Raid PCIe card to solve the issue. Im happily reporting that it is not the case with new 2010 MPs. I have dual boot SL + Win7 64 installed on my 180GB SSD and 3x2TB drives in raid 0. Everything is operational so dont waste money on unnecessary expansion cards before purchasing your new MP.

There's been reports of both (unctional/non-functioning separate and BC'ed Windows disks when an OS X created array is being used.

What there isn't a lot of information on, is the system model, or the firmware revision (which I suspect is the differentiating factor between working/non-working systems).

Makes for a lot of confusion. :(
