    I am running 10.7, if that makes a difference, and wish to make a RAID0 out of two internal drives I have in my '06 Pro.

    I have an SSD as my main system drive, but I don't think that makes much difference.

    I want to get an additional SSD for a Win7 install for a future project on the same '06 pro, using up the 4th bay.

    My concern here is: Can I create the RAID0 setup and somehow access (READ/WRITE) to that RAID0 setup from within BOTH Win7 and 10.7?

    I tried to explain this as simply as I could and I hope you can get what I am getting at.

    Thanks! PS: I searched but couldn't find this specific topic on the site.

    A Software Raid is not Cross-Platform-Compatible.

    The bootcamp driver makes it possible, HOWEVER, 99% you will get BSOD in Windows.

    You can with MacDrive 10. It will make an AppleRAID Software RAID array available in Windows with read/write access.
