Hello, Wink,

What about having a small boot partition outside LVM and RAID0?

Evenmore, you might create a RAID1 for /boot in order to have
redundancy at least for the boot partition.
Another option would be, having 2 /boot partitions (non RAID1),  one
in each NVME device and use the second one as a backup...
