SATA hardware RAID is not supported on Linux systems. The Linux kernel, with built-in software RAID,
provides excellent functionality and performance. It is a good alternative to hardware-based RAID. All
drives must be identical in type and capacity
Boot volume/RAID array must be less than 2 TB (for 32-bit Windows).
