Re: When they say no preupgrade for RAID don't they really mean software RAID?
I suspect he meant software RAID. I would put your comment on the bug. With software RAID, you would be using the software to recover. With hardware RAID, the software should be irrelevant. (HOST RAID is a whole different thing, and I suppose dependent upon the manufacturer---many only have drivers for Windows and ARE reliant on the O/S).
