Advice on starting RAID setup in G5 tower
I like to set up a RAID 0 in my G5, and like an advice on the best way to start.
My G5 currently has a single 500G drive, which I like to upgrade to a pair of 750G RAID 0 striped drives.
Should I be...
Put the first 750G drive into the G5 and use Disk Utility in the 500G primary drive to format it, then follow by installing OSX into this 750G.
Afterwards taking out the 500G, switch the now formatted/systemed 750G into the primary position, and then place the second 750G drive into the second drive bay, then formatting this second drive and RAID them from there using Disk Utility.
Take out the 500G and put both 750G into the G5. Boot the G5 from a 10.5 disk, format the pair one drive after the next, then install OSX into one of the drives, follow by striping them (RAID 0) using Disk Utility.
Which of the above is the preferred method?
Should the drives be formatted separately then striped? Or can they be striped first before the installation of OSX?
Much appreciate to any help and suggestions in advance.
