Disk Utility's RAID feature doesn't seem to work
Authored by: babbage on Oct 20, '09 11:59:16AM

Oddly enough, the list of unsupported computers happens to be identical to the list of computers that don't include a spare SATA bay to install a second drive to create a RAID set with.

You could remove the optical drive, sure, but that's exactly the sort of thing that Apple isn't likely to condone within the context of a valid warranty.

As far as I can tell, software RAID works just fine on any Mac that has room for at least a pair of SATA drives. My G5 tower at home has been running from a mirrored pair of 1.5TB drives for months now without a problem.
