ltmgtfy:

Anyway, if you must, I would recommend to read that thread first, especially the 3rd post. Moreover, IMHO it'd be beteer to split the OS drive into two partitions and only add the non-OS partition to the Pool (again, only if it really benefits you to use OS HW in the Pool).

 

Edit: I should read better, the post I referred to is not quite what you ask. In any case I think the answer remains the same: Yes you can, questionable whether you should.

Also, the actual OS install (say windows, the Program Files and Users folders etc) will not then end up *in* the Pool.

I think it would be theoretically possible if you were so inclined to try it. Since drive pool is a service within Windows you would be asking for a good deal of trouble if you decided to try this. I suspect Windows Updating would cause you no end of trouble if you were ever to successfully get it running.

You can add the C:\ drive to a pool.  But you cannot boot from the pool. 

This means that the Windows isntallation must remain on the C:\ drive, and cann't be used to add redundancy for the boot disk.
