Sorry if this has been answered but I cant see it.

 

Can I put a hdd/ssd in the top bay then drop the 4 drives from my older microserver in as either 2 raid 1 sets or 1 raid 10 set (as far as I can see it can't do raid 5 without an add on card and as I intend to use it as a file dump and run temporary test vms on it I don't see a need

 

If it makes any odds I plan to install either win 8.1 or 7 on it

You are correct, the RAID controller on the MSG8 can not do RAID 5, just 0-1-10.

You can put a 2.5" drive or SSD up in the ODD bay and run it off the ODD SATA port, but it will run at SATA II speed.
