Hey all, I've got a MacBook Pro (mid-2011) running Lion (up to date). I'm using FileVault encryption on the Macintosh HD drive. Recently I've bought two USB3 portable (no power cable needed) external disk drives (both 1TB). One by LaCie and one by Iomega. I set one up with TimeMachine (using provided encryption options as well) and the other blank. And seems to be working fine. Today I thought I'd go extra protective and use RAID1 to have redundancy as well as back up. I wanted to RAID1 Mirror the Time Machine backup from one external drive to the other. I found out I had to clear it first, so I gave up on the backups I had so far and cleared it. Then set up the RAID Mirror but then this problem showed up. While it was initializing (one drive just got it's new "Slice 1 of RAID Mirror" label in the sidebar of the Disk Utility) I got a kernel panic. Hadn't gotten that ever with this machine. So I shutdown and reboot but after the initial FileVault (before OSX boots), I get a kernel panic again. This time not a regular overlay but also a lot of Unix-flavor codes are shown between the grey Apple screen and the kernel panic layer. Rebooting again gave the same result. Disconnecting the drives got me into OSX properly, but after starting Disk Utility and connecting the drives again, it went for another kernel panic. Tried several times but no luck, can't get those drives to do pretty much anything. Any advice? Would like at least be being able to run Time Machine again (without RAID 1) and using the other drive for regular storage. Thanks in advance.
