Trouble booting a new RAID0 machine with Debian sarge
We've got a new dual Xeon box with 4HD's, which I've tried installing Debian (sarge) on. The 4 disks are connected to an adaptec Serial ATA controller, which Debian recognises, and when installing from a CD with the 2.6.8-1 kernel, I'm seemingly allowed to setup the first drive as the one with the boot partition on it (as well as /home, /usr, /etc...) while the other three I configure as a RAID0 partition. However, when the installation's done and the OS tries to reboot from the HD, it simply hangs (goes past the BIOS to a black screen with a flashing underscore cursor).
Can anyone spot anything obviously wrong that I've done? Should the HD with the boot sector be connected to the controller, or straight to the motherboard? The BIOS has the following boot sequence set up:
- Hard Drive
Any help would be much appreciated!
