Adrian,

you are not really getting the point of the starting topic, do you?

He asked for the RAID 0 and I bet he knows that RAID 0 does not go hand in hand to be reliable, it is about the performance. RAID 0 will speed up your system disks a lot and if you want reliability you go for raid 5.

I tried installing OSX ML on Raid 0 on TWO 128GB Samsung 840 PRO but can't figure it out. Getting errors after installer reboots the system.

Would love to know as well how to set it up.

Thanks

Mandy, I do, I have talked with repez a number of times. I am not convinced that he is aware of the downsides of doing Raid 0. The upside is pretty minimal.

I did post a link to creating a raid 0 very soon after his original comment - it didn't get past moderation. You will need to use the search facility, there are raid 0 arrays being used on this site.

There are many downsides to a RAID0 array and the only reason to use one is if you really need fast read/write from the drives. This was in issue with platter drives, but not with SSDs. There is really no need to RAID0 your SSDs to get faster performance. In fact, there are times when the performance will actually drop due to transmission rates through the SATA ports. If you do use RAID0, then be prepared to rebuild the array and reinstall frequently and make sure you back up your work files, never keeping your files stored on the array.

If you really want to put SSDs in RAID0, then you do it the same way you do HDDs. neilhart did a very good walk-through here - http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-...-0-os-x-10-8-5-using-tonymacx86-tool-set.html

Hi

nevermind
The advice that I gave was for the thread OP, given after many similar discussions - it was my choice to NOT recommend that the OP attempt a RAID 0 as at the time of writing it was my understanding that it was beyond the understanding of the OP. I was not prepared to provide support in the OP doing a RAID 0 array at that point in time.
