of course you are assuming facts not in evidence.

If for example, he was trying to dual-boot with Windows and Windows had
already set the drives up as fake raid...then he would probably have to
work it through in this way to use a partition on the existing raid
setup in some manner - and then my links may have been helpful.

I of course wouldn't know this - I only have one system as dual-boot -
my ancient Sony PictureBook laptop and am generally not a fan of dual-
boot systems.
