Hello,

I am unsure if this is the correct forum section to post this, I apologize if it's not.
I have a small "issue" with a Mac Mini I have.

It's been laying around gathering dust and I decided to try to do something with it.
I decided I needed a place to store all my old files, pictures, texts etc etc in case my main computer goes night-night.

So I replaced MacOS completely with Windows, but what I didn't know was that the Mini/MacOS was setup and installed on a Raid1 setup with 2x 1TB disks.

And I was just wondering if it was possible to setup the Raid 1 again and install windows on this?
I tried to partition and raid the disks as FAT in the Apple disk utility by booting into recovery mode but the Windows installer just told me it wasn't possible to install onto that partition.
I also tried setting up the disks with Diskpart inside the Windows installation installer, but this didn't work either, the disk status was just stuck on rebuild.

Is there any way to setup this Mac Mini with Windows on a Raid 1 partition?
Note: The mac mini only has 2 physical drive slots.


Please and thank you.
