Well, it could possibly be fake RAID, I configured it in the BIOS, and it allowed me to do partial disc raid. As this is one disc, so installing the OS would overwrite the MBR, so would require XP to be installed first (easiest option). I am wondering whether I should just use a mdadm in ubuntu to setup RAID, looks like it might be the easiest option.

I have 2x1TB physical drives. 900GB RAID 1, and what's left is RAID 0. I am not concerned about the data on the XP side which will be on RAID 0. Ubuntu installation has just failed whilst trying to install grub to /dev/sda. Wouldn't installing XP afterwards wipe out the MBR like it usually does when installing XP after?

How would I find out if it will let me know about drive failure?

I don't have a separate hardware controller card, just that on the motherboard. The motherboard does seem to support doing this.

I can set this up as you have said in hardware, why did you say the disadvantage would be that the ob-board RAID wouldn't be used?

This sounds like a good idea. The computer is fast so software RAID wouldn't be a problem and may be easier for me to setup, although I probably would prefer it was handled by the hardware. So would this approach not use hardware RAID at all?

I was going to use RAID on the motherboard (MSI 990XA-GD55). I recently had a hard drive fail without warning and lost everything, which I would like to try to minimise this time, which is why I am considering RAID 1...
