Do not let them tell you that you cannot boot from a software raid. I do it
here all the time. The /boot has to be on a raid1 setup to boot. Everything
else can be on a whatever raid you choose.
Bottom line is if they caused you downtime then you should be compensated for
The adventure of a lifetime.
