    I am thinking of connecting two drives to the internal SATA ports on the 09 Mini and use them together in RAID 0.

    Will it be possible somehow to boot both Leopard, and XP in Boot camp on the resulting drive?

    If not, why not?

    Since the RAID array is created with software and OSX was used to created the array there is no way for Windows to see the array.

    Ok. But then why can the boot loader that boots OS X see the RAID drive (before OS X is loaded)?

    Couldnt XP just aswell be able to see the RAID drive then?
