The issue is APFS specific. So your options are:
 
1. Clean Install: Install to a standalone drive (separate from your SSDs), then use Disk Util to create or format your two SSD raidSSDs RAID 0 and make sure it is formatted JHFS+Journaled HFS+. Then clone the single drive to the raidRAID 0 volume and it will work.

I had tried this method using APFS on the raidRAID and it fails to boot. So the issue is APFS *can't* boot from raidRAID.

2. You can try upgrading to High Sierra, but without converting the file system to APFS. (I have not tried this myself).
 
Download High Sierra, but do not install it, then from the command line run:
 
/Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --converttoapfs NO --volume /DestinationDriveName
