Bitlocker drive encryption on a raid 0 partition, crashes windows.
I've got 2x1TB partition using raid 0 on C: drive which I recently shrunk a little to make a 10GB partition to put "secure" items into. When I try to enable bitlocker encryption on the partition, it gets part of the way through and then my computer dies horribly. It's not a BSOD, the screen is black and windows tells me it can't find its loader.
I reboot a few times and everything is back to normal. Delete the partition, re-create it, format it and try again, same thing.
Bitlocker works ok on my USB keys.
Can anyone give me a clue? I'm wondering if it's the bios throwing a hissy-fit, rather than windows!

Is this a software-based RAID? BITLOCKER is not supported on software-based RAID systems:

For hardware-based RAID systems, whilst all the Microsoft documentation says that it is supported, many people seem to have no success with it - possibly issues with the controller. Some people report success if adding a 3rd drive apparently:
