    • Raid1 hardware or software?

      Hi guys, I want to do a raid1, but I don't know if to do a RAID1 software or hardware.
      I have a motherboard with h170, so I can do it.
      What should I do for you? Does RAID1 software have some Pro against raid hardware?

    • That motherboard doesn't have real hardware raid. I would just use software raid.

    • No, actually the motherboard raid is worse. It can be very dependent on the motherboard for compatibility. Where a mdadm software raid array can be used on any system. They are both software raid but the motherboard raid is proprietary.

    • Nope, you don't want to mount drives that will be in a software raid array. You need to wipe them and then they should show up.

    • You can't mirror the drive with the OS on it from the web interface. Why do you want to mirror the OS drive anyway?

    • Put OMV on a usb stick (make sure to install the flashmemory plugin though).

    • You could install it onto a usb stick is what I meant. But, you can use clonezilla to move the install. It typically doesn't work very well for going from a larger drive to a smaller drive though.

    • I had a 32GB memory card, so i'm using it :)
      the problem is with grub, after cloning my partition to micro SD, now it doesn't detect OMV anymore :(
      Edit: i'll create a new post for the grub problem, it has more sense
