    Please understand, this is way to vague to be of any help, so please answer the following:
    • How many ports do you need?
    • Internal, external, or hybrid port configuration?

    This is doable with Areca or ATTO's 6.0Gb/s offerings.

    Unfortunately, this is not possible (cannot boot multiple OS's from one card in a MP).

    You'd need to run a separate disk for Windows off of the system's SATA ports (ICH). You can even do this for both OS X and Windows, and just keep the data on the array. Another option would be to run a separate OS X boot disk or array off of the card (totally separate from the data array = do not share the disks via partitions).

    Or you can use a single disk for both OS's (use BC to share it).
