I need to install a Linux distribution on my laptop (an Asus UX302LA) but I couldn't even begin the installation.

To explain you my problem, I know that Windows is installed in UEFI mode. Furthermore, I have discovered that I have a RAID0, probably a software one, in my laptop.

I tried to install the latest version of Ubuntu and Mint, both 64bits. I find some tutorials on the internet but I'm so afraid about deleting all my data (and also the recovery partition).

How do I install a dual boot on a RAID0?

  • First of all, you could give a bit more information about the system you're trying to install on (manufacturer, model, kind of disk controller, …). – Andreas Wiese Apr 23 '14 at 15:52
  • Maybe you want to disable EFI mode in BIOS before beginning installation? – darnir Apr 23 '14 at 16:07
  • Hi guys, my laptop is an Asus UX302LA with an HDD of 256 GB. I thought there was only one HDD but I discovered that there is a raid0. I know also that Windows 8 is installed in UEFI mode. I don't know if you need more information ;) I tried already to install by disabling UEFI mode but I got an error directly after the begining of the installation :-\ – user1382272 Apr 24 '14 at 8:07

Don't do it is the short answer: RAID0 is worse than no RAID at all from a reliability perspective.

Long answer what you should do:
