I’m trying to install manjaro alongside Windows 10 in a dual boot configuration. My laptop has only one mode for the SATA controller in the BIOS, and that is RAID (Intel RST). This means that the live environment does not recognize my SSD at all. The following link shows the problem and a workaround in the form of a custom kernel patch to make Linux work with Intel RST: system installation - Install Ubuntu on Dell Inspiron 14 7490 - Ask Ubuntu
I was wondering whether manjaro has some tools that allow this to work more easily. I read about mdadm but I can’t find the relevant documentation.
Is it possible to install manjaro on a NVME drive configured with Intel RST?
Would mdadm be able to help and how would that work?
Are there other options, like a custom kernel patch as shown in the link, and is that a recommended step?
