Want to upgrade my OS drives to RAID-1 on my Stablebit FileServer and my Workstation, does the Intel raid on the motherboards that support works reliably? If i unplug a disk from the motherboard raid will the Intel raid proceed to boot degraded and report it?

I'm moving this to the "Off Topic" section, as this doesn't really involve StableBit DrivePool. 


As for the Intel RST based RAID, I'm not sure honestly. 


It should be fairly reliable though. But the performance out of it may not be great, because it's onboard/pseudo-software RAID. But that shouldn't matter much in this case. 


As for unplugging it, I honestly couldn't tell you as I've never done this.  

That said, I think that it does, at least if you have the software installed on the OS.



But either way, this would essentially require reinstalling the OS, to get it to work properly.
