    RAID-0 + Disk_partition + Dual_boot_OS

    Are there any reports of attempts to combine these three things together simultaneously?:
    1. RAID-0
    2. A disk partition (into two virtual disks)
    3. A Dual boot (into two operating systems, say MS WINDOWS and LINUX)

    I believe such a thing should be straightforward to do, (and I am looking at doing it), yet I am looking for reports of people who have actually attempted it.

    Thanks!

    BIOS RAID support for Linux is in a bad state right now, if you use a pure hardware raid controller you wont have a problem (like 3ware cards for instance), but you'll have to come up with a decent partition scheme for dual-booting or it'll bite you in the ass later.

    Can be done, and has been done.. the theory is sound, just the implementation on the Linux side can be awkward
