Got three drives, two for a RAID-1 array and one more for backup. 

Got it enabled for MBR, but it seems the GPT adds complexity for Raidframe due that each GPT partition is offered as a new disk/wedge to the system.

Should be created only one wedge at first, using the entire disk, then apply raidframe to it (don't know if raidframe is ready for GPT?), then do again a GPT layout into the raid0 device to deploy the filesystems?
