Does Windows NT Workstation support RAID?

A. Windows NT Workstation doesn’t support fault-tolerant RAID (e.g., RAID 1 or RAID 5). However, NT Workstation does support RAID 0 (stripe set without parity). Hardware RAID will work because it’s transparent to the OS.

Although changing the ProductType registry key to enable fault tolerance on NT Workstation might be a future consideration, to do so would violate Microsoft’s licensing, and Microsoft wouldn’t support the change. Don’t request the method from me because I won’t distribute it and will delete your email message without replying.
