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.

Validate just stops
#1
I have a RAID 0 volume (4 x 4 TB = 16 TB), and I want to validate it (just to be sure).

I right click on the volume on the rhs of the SoftRAID window, and choose Validate, and validation starts. But very shortly, the "current offset" stops incrementing, at a value somewhere between 3 and 4 billion, and the estimated time starts increasing towards infinity (and then is no longer displayed).

I can't tell if it is the counter itself that has stopped, or the entire validation. Validation of this volume should take about 18-24 hours, so I could just let it run and see if it finishes, but I haven't yet.

The SoftRAID log doesn't show any errors.

Thoughts?

If you have the volume optimized for digital video, audio, or Photography, then validation pauses when you are working the computer. If you want validation to happen faster, set optimization to workstation.

You can change optimization at any time.
