I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I have a single 500GB hard drive, which contains 2 partitions. The first partition is about 265MB and contains Windows 7. The second partition contains Windows XP Professional 32-bit, as I occasionally need to boot into XP for some software development and testing.
I would like to add a second hard drive, and use it to mirror the Windows 7 partition using Windows 7 software RAID 1, thus providing me with some protection should one drive fail. If I purchase another identical 500GB hard drive, and make a partition of the same size (265MB), will I be able to mirror my Windows 7 setup in the way intended, or can anyone foresee any problems or issues? I am NOT intending to mirror the Windows XP partition.
