I was doing these test on RAID1 with my two 40GB Seagate IDE hard drives...
Here's what I did:
* I took out hdc
* formatted it into NTFS under XP
* While waiting, I tried booting hda
alone, it works fine
* after that I reinstalled hdc
-ed it so it will have identical partitions with hda
* then raidhotadd
to add it back in to the RAID array
works fine... no worries at all
I did it again with hda
, hdc boots fine by itself... but when i did the remaining steps and reboot, I get this:
Error loading operating system
I could not find this error message in the GRUB manual~
I got curious and unplugged hda
's power, I can get into GRUB and managed to load Linux~!!!
Hope you guys get what I said above, haha
Do let me know if you all need more info...
This is some weird sh*t... well, at least its weird to me
Oh yeah, before I ran those test, I did this in GRUB:
>device (hd0) /dev/hdc
So i can boot both even if either drive fails (got this from http://lists.us.dell.com/pipermail/l...ly/014331.html
if anyone is interested)
