Externail Raid to FIrewire boot from mac mini?

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Well I just lost my G5. I don't have the time to put it in a shop and wait for them to repair the system. SO for now I need a firewire drive setup that can take the 2 drives from the G5 and put them on a mac mini. I was running the software RAID on the G5. 2 250 GB drives, partioned to a 400 stripe. with 2 33GB partions on each drive. Most of my Music and TV Shows are on the 400 drive where as mos of my data is kinda mirrored between the remainig 33 GB Partions. I have a presentation with a potential sponsor on th 22nd and it will take me a good two weeks just to have everything ready. But thats assuming I have my basline to work with. Otherwise I am kinda screwed.

    I'm pretty sure it will work, you just need to get the appropriate drive enclosures. I have a stripe pair on Firewire working right now. It doesn't have to be a two-drive enclosure, two separate enclosures connected in a chain should work as well, I've seen it done.
