Booting from RAID under fakeraid.
I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I haven't been able to find a clear answer on my own.
I understand that to boot from a RAID partition under software RAID, it has to be RAID-1. I believe that with true hardware RAID, the boot partition can be any RAID level as the RAID hardware presents the array to the bootloader/OS as a single disk.
I'd like to know what the case is with fakeraid. If I use my motherboard's fakeraid controller (Intel ICH/Matrix) to set up the RAID, could I then boot Linux off a RAID-5 array, or does it still have to be RAID-1? I've seen things online that imply either answer...
Thanks for your help
