    Hello there,

    Generally, no - you can't boot from a software RAID volume because the BIOS/UEFI/etc don't know anything about it. Your OS bootloader file might get striped across multiple physical drives and even if the BIOS/UEFI/etc could find the beginning of it (say if it happened to start in the expected location), it would have no idea how to find the rest.

    I think you can not include mere partitions in storage spaces pools, but you are NOT forced to dedicate full disks either.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
