Can Windows NT be on a stripe set?

A. If Windows NT provides software RAID 0 or RAID 5 (stripe set or stripe set with parity), then neither the NT boot nor the system partition can be on a RAID 0 or RAID 5 volume. This situation results from the fact that using these RAID volumes requires the fault-tolerant driver that NT loads during boot-up. If you require NT to be on a stripped set, you need to purchase hardware RAID.
