Boot Camp on Mac Pro with Raid


I recently tired to install windows on my Mac Pro with a 4-way RAID setup (software), and it refused to run because of the RAID. I was wondering at this point what my options would be to run Windows on the system.

1) Is it possible to boot Windows from an external hard drive (I don't think Boot Camp will allow this)

2) If I install another hard drive on one of the free internal SATA ports, will Boot Camp install on a hard drive that's not the OSX Boot Drive

3) Is there a workaround to install Windows on the OSX RAID (this is a longshot, it may not be technically feasible)

I really would prefer not having to give up my RAID, but I have a few things I want to test under windows with the 8 cores.


Mine:iMac 5k (4.0/24/1TB Fusion/295X), 12" MacBook (1.1/8/256), iPad Air 2 128GB WiFi, iPhone 7 Plus 128GB
Hers: 15" Late-2011 MBP (2.2/16/480 SSD), iPad Air 16GB WiFi, iPhone 5c 16GB
Home Server: 2010 Mac Mini (Core2Duo/8GB) with 14TB attached storage
