loading windows 7 onto large RAID 0 disk

Hi
I am new here, but I must already thank you for all the interesting info I have found here. I recently upgraded my computer and part of the plan was to use two 2Tb drives in a raid setup for my main windows drive. I see that it only recognises about half of the raid volume and the rest is unallocated space. Is this a general limit on Windows or is there a work around this?

Have you tried to reformat the drive? or create another partion?

You can read several possible fixes here. Installing Windows 7 on a RAID 0 or 5 using six 1.5Tb barracudas

But realize the larger the partition the slower it will be.

Thanks for the quick replies. I see in that link that there is a problem booting from drives or virtual disks larger than 2Tb, so I will have to try something else - a pity as the two drives are SATA III.
