  1. I have a computer running a dual boot of Windows 7 and XP with two 500 gig drives running in raid 0 via the on board raid. From what I have read after setting up my raid drive It does not gain me much performance. I was wondering two things though. A: Can you use this system in a dual boot like this where it would only affect the windows 7 performance? B: Does this system function in tandem with any raid setups? I know I do not have a typical set up but I do have a lot of older games that I do play now and again on the XP platform just for the fun of it. My setup consists of a asus m3n ht deluxe MB, Amd quad phenom 2, 8 gigs of ddr2 800, Gtx 660 Ti video card. and the before mentioned 500 gig drives.
     
  2. Never mind I got answers A: and B: from crucials website. Nope and Nope.

    I was having problems with the Dataplex software and Windows Updates (where it would crash and I would need to restore to an earlier image) but that seemed to have been worked out with the latest release. I'm sure happy about that as I had the drive disconnected for a while and wasn't using it due to this issue but now it seems resolved!

    Well, it still seems like it is still an issue with Dataplex version 1.2.0.4. As such, I have disabled Windows Updates altogether for now and will uninstall/reinstall around the manual updates in the future. I have been creating system images every night so it was a big deal but definitely a nuisance.
