How to use a SoftRAID startup volume with High Sierra

If you're using High Sierra, and booting up from a SoftRAID volume, you'll need to follow the steps given in this forum post, since the macOS High Sierra Installer does not recognize SoftRAID volumes as valid startup volumes.

"read only" after conversion to softRAID from AppleRAID
Hello, I recently used SoftRAID Lite to convert a AppleRAID to a SoftRAID so I could monitor its health. I am using OS 10.11.6 El Capitan. After conversion the RAID seemed to be working fine, until today when I got a message saying: "OS X can't repair the disk RINEKWALL_RAID. You can still open or copy files on the disk, but you can't save changes to files on the disk. Back up the disk and reformat it as soon as you can." (see attached file). Can you please tell me why this has happened and how I can fix it? The RAID has been turned into "read-only". How do I convert it back to read and write, either with SoftRAID and/or Disk Warrior?

Your volume directory is damaged, and the normal routine Apple runs at startup could not repair it. So OS X mounted it as read only.

Disk Warrior would be perfect, since you already have it.

Disk Warrior will have no problem rebuilding the directory.
