"I've seen a lot of confusion about Linux RAID, so let's clear that up. Linux software RAID has nothing to do with hardware RAID controllers. You don't need an add-on controller, and you don't need the onboard controllers that come on most motherboards.

There is no advantage to using these, and many disadvantages. If you have these, make sure they are disabled."
