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.

FileVault / other encryption for Softraid lite volumes
#1
Hello,
I have FileVault turned on providing whole disk encryption for my iMac. Can I extend that to my SoftRAID setup? Or can I use a different encryption approach if FileVault won't work?

I have two 6TB external USB drives mirrored.

Thanks,
Steig

In the future we expect encyrytion to function with APFS volumes in SoftRAID 6.x.

We do not have that working yet, but expect that to be available later this year.

Do you plan encryption support for HFS+ volumes, too?

It appears that Apple will not fix the bug preventing this.
So no, we are unlikely to support encryption under HFS.
