Adding SATA RAID 5 secondary drives to Ubuntu (8.04) after installation
Hey. I've just installed Ubuntu, which is triple-booting with XP and Vista. All 3 OSs run on seperate drives, with Vista split across 3 drives in a RAID 5 array.
I installed Ubuntu so that I could use my BIOS to select boot options, i.e. I unplugged my other hard drives whilst I installed Ubuntu. Once Ubuntu was installed, I plugged my other drives back in. Problem is that the RAID array is simply not detected. Not as a single drive, not as 3 drives... nothing.
There are a few bits and bobs on the web about *installing* Ubuntu on a RAID system, but nothing on adding in RAID drives post-install.
Should RAID arrays be detected without fiddling, and something less obvious is the problem? Or does Ubuntu need all this kernel patching or whatever just to get support for RAID?
