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.

Mojave compatibility?

I was just about to rearrange my storage and move my Thunderbay Mini to my Mac mini server, which is running the Mojave public beta. I fired up SoftRAID XT (don't currently have any compatible drives attached) and let it update to the latest driver, but it throws an error on startup ("an internal part of SoftRAID has stopped functioning properly") and has to be shut down.

I saw some chatter that SoftRAID was compatible with Mojave betas on the iMac Pro - is there something I need to do to get it working on my Mac mini?

There are going to be compatibility issues, so SoftRAID needs to be updated for Mohave.

We are aware of your issue and a kernel panic.

We will have a beta available shortly for testers of Mohave.

Try connecting a SoftRAID disk at startup, then running SoftRAID. See if that allows it to launch.

I just moved my Thunderbay mini over to the Mac mini, and the volumes are recognized properly, but launching SoftRAID still gives the same error. Interestingly, the SoftRAID interface indicates that three drives are missing from my two SoftRAID volumes.

I then restarted the Mac mini, and the volumes still show up properly on restart, but trying to launch SoftRAID gives the same error, and now my SoftRAID volumes don't show in the interface at all before I quit.
