I'm getting Windows-7 in the next couple days to install on a home-built 2-disk system. The motherboard supports fake-raid, so I'll be setting up some RAID0 and RAID1 volumes. My hope is to make the OS super-fast to boot. Nevertheless, I want to have some mechanism to recover the OS within 20-40 minutes of a disk getting replaced.
Here is my proposed partition setup:
001GB WinRe Recovery Environment RAID1 100GB Main OS RAID0 Fastest 012GB Swap Disk RAID0 Next fastest 360GB Data, configurations, apps RAID1
Can anyone comment on whether this makes sense? Secondly, when one drive dies & gets replaced, how would I use WinRe (Recovery) & install DVD to re-establish the Main OS.
