I have been trying for 2 days now to install Mavericks on my Mac Mini with 2 Samsung Pro 512 SSD's in a RAID 0 and it just won't work (Apple software has really been disappointing me lately). I've installed OS X on RAID 0 in the past without a hitch so I tried the same process. Plan A First I made a bootable Carbon Copy clone of my functional Mavericks installation to an external drive. When I tried to boot from it wouldn't work and would go straight into OS X Utilities! After many attempts I gave up and went to plan B Plan B I made a Time Machine backup on the external drive and booted from it. I then used Disk Utility from Recovery Mode and created a RAID 0 from the 2 internal SSD's. I then attempted to restore from the Time Machine backup and was presented the following error "An error occurred while adding a recovery system to the destination disk". Apparently, OS X can't add recovery partitions to a striped RAID (anymore?) and it refuses to restore without creating the recovery partition! Plan C I downloaded Mavericks from Mac App Store and created a install disk on my external drive and booted from it. I then attempted to create a clean install of Mavericks on my striped RAID. The installation process was going fine until it reached "about a minute left" where it froze. I read many similar posts saying it will reboot after 15 minutes. Over an hour later it was still stuck so I canceled the install and tried again. On the second attempt, it did the exact same thing and I waited over 3 hours and it was still stuck on "about a minute left". So, I did what others suggested and forcefully powered down the machine. On booting it did not recognize the RAID as being bootable and the installation process was unsuccessful. So, with one last effort I performed the install again and this time I let it sit on "about a minute left" overnight (for 8 hours) and when I woke it, up was STILL stuck!! Really Apple? Your OS can't even be installed on a striped RAID anymore???? Has anyone been able to get this to work ??
