  • No. The Disk/partition information is the physical drive information (controller, port). This has nothing to do with the logical structure of the drives. 

    Unfortunately getting this information via WMI is difficult. Way back in 2005 the Scripting Guys put together this script but even then they warned that it didn't make a lot of sense.
