hi! i'm having problems with grub. My system has 6 scsi drives with 2 scsi controllers. 3 drives r connected to each controller. My / partition is a software raid 0. I'm using 1 drive from ea. controller for the / partition (so only 2 drives r in the raid 0 /dev/sda1, /dev/sdd1) I don't have a separate boot partition. When I run root (hd0,0) everything is ok and it tells me the partition type is xfs which is what i am using on my / partition. When i run setup (hd0) it says it can't find the stage1 file and fails. I also tried root (hd1,0) and setup (hd1) it also tells me the file system is xfs, but fails when it looks for the stage1 file. Also, grub only shows me 4 drives (hd0, hd1, hd2, hd3). BTW I'm using gentoo. I know about
lists.us.dell.com/pipermail/linux-poweredge/2003-July/014331.html i've used it many times on systems with ide drives and a software raid and it has worked fine every single time.
Yeah, i backed up everything on my / and redid my partitions. I now have a raid 1 /boot, i installed grub, but when i boot the system after it detects all the hd nothing happens. It just sits there i never see the grub prompt or anything. Any ideas?
Distribution: Redhat Linux 8 & 9, Fedora Core 2, XP
hope you boys don't mind me chipping in...
I'm having raid and grub problems as well... mine's simple, just a raid1 with 2 200gb drives.
my problem is everytime i reboot my server, grub won't load my kernel, i have to load it manually...
i tried grub-install but it keeps giving me this message: /dev/md0 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive
# cat /boot/grub/menu.lst

Do have trouble with grub NOT automatically loading your kernel? Been trying to solve this mess for months!
