    Hey! So I am undergoing the upgrade of my Mac to use 2 SSDs. I don't use Windows often, but need to every now and then. I want to have it available. If I take my two new SSDs and RAID and stripe them together, will I still be able to create a partition from that for Bootcamp to reside? Would it be possible for me to create a partition first for bootcamp, then RAID the rest off the drive?
    Sorry, this is all very new to me and I don't want to mess up my system by playing around with it too much.

    Any help is awesome, thanks!

    After research, i answered my own question. No, it is not possible because RAID uses the entirety of the drives its composed of.

    If you're using OS X's software RAID, then the answer is no, because its a software RAID implementation built into OS X. Windows will not be able to install in a setup such as that.
