    A related idea occurred to us recently, after seeing the VROC "dongle".

    There may be a way for Microsoft to modify future Windows OS
    to boot from an OS "software RAID" e.g. by permitting the
    STARTUP files to be pre-loaded on a USB thumb drive.

    If this were done in a generic way, it would overcome the
    published restrictions of that VROC dongle solution.

    At the risk of repeating myself too often, full x16 PCIe slots
    do not suffer from the MAX HEADROOM imposed by
    Intel's DMI 3.0 link, assuming motherboard chipsets
    assign full x16 logical lanes.

    And, if multiple x16 add-in cards can support most modern
    RAID modes, making those RAID arrays bootable
    is progress just waiting to happen e.g. Highpoint SSD7110.

    Lastly, these developments will dovetail perfectly
    with PCIe 4.0, which will oscillate at 16GHz.
