Most modern motherboards support RAID0,1,5 and 10. After assembling my new computer, I discovered that the motherboard didn't have a true hardware-RAID-controller. Instead it's just software-RAID, sometimes called fakeraid. If I was installing a Linux-only-system, I wouldn't care and just use the Linux software-Raid options. But this time, my system has to be dual-boot.
