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.

How to Convert Raid 0 to Raid 5 ?
#1
I already have a RAID 0 setup and with data...NOW, i wish to convert it to a RAID 5....but not sure how to do this....can you please list the steps on how to do this.

Do i have to do something with the safe guards and then just re-certify the disks again? and then later am i given the option to choose what RAID type i want to setup?

I cannot find any literature or help videos on this subject.

thanks,
JF

Disable Safeguard, delete the old volume, then create a new volume.

If you choose to certify the disks, then you will need to also initialize them with SoftRAID before you can create a volume using them.
