I currently have a Windows box with many drives in it. Many of them are in pairs, using a software RAID 1 via Windows 7, which supports mirroring. The drives in the RAID are all formatted as NTFS.
Can I install Linux as a dual boot?
If I boot into Linux, will bad things happen to my Windows software RAID? Will Linux just ignore the drives and leave things alone? I do NOT need Linux to view the contents of said drives.
