    Oh, so M$ have greyed out RAID 5 on Windows 7, pity, I need it.
    So, has any clever person manged to enable it?
    Perhaps use the code from Server 2K8?
    Diskpart can create RAID 5 arrays, but when you boot up se7en they ain't there?
    The hack that is used in XP don't work, as the disk manager is different.
    I know I can get a HW Raid controller and do it that way,
    Or get a MoBo with a Controller that does RAID 5.
    But they all cost money, and I already have the OS.
    Nice little project for some interested Software 'geek'
