Hello,

I initially used hardware RAID 0 (fakeraid) to speed up my pc. However, I can't easily use linux due to drivers being closed source, and I feel that, atleast with my raid controller, hardware raid is infact slower than software raid, after doing alot of benchmarking.

I converted both discs in windows to dynamic, and created stripped volumes. The problem is Windows itself is on the simple system volume, and can't be installed on a stripped dynamic volume.

So, is there any way I can move, or, how much of the windows system folder and program files folder and documents and settings folder can I move onto the stripped dynamic volume and still have windows boot? How do I configure things so that programs, and any newly installed programs install into the folders on the dynamic volume?

i heard many accounts of it being possible, but I can't find anything on google.

lengthy instructions are no problem, actually desirable and greatly appreciated :)

Boy, you are really trying to make this an unstable mess, aren't you! Do yourself a favor and just buy something like a WD Raptor for the Windows disk and call it good.
