I imaged my server using Acronis 2009 today. I have a mdadm software raid configuration that is currently only running on one drive. First, I needed to setup GRUB after i created the image on the main drive, no problems. Booted, made my changes, broke something and I need to go back to the image I created.
Running Ubuntu 6.06, Kernel 2.6.15-26-server, Intel 945 board.
I setup grub using gparted as my live CD by running...
# root (hd0,0)
# setup (hd0,0)
(Same thing I needed to do to get the main drive to boot)
Now when I boot, it loads GRUB rather than a flashing cursor, then I get...
ata1: disabling port
It does not boot past that. If I switch SATA channels I get the same message but with ata2.
Here is the output of my menu.lst file.
title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.15-26-server
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-26-server root=/dev/md1 ro quiet splash
title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.15-26-server (recovery mode)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-26-server root=/dev/md1 ro single
Recovery mode will boot to an extent, after enabling USB devices (which I have since unplugged), it will give me the error.
I noticed when I booted the second drive in the array that I got the error message, but it continued booting. I would have used this drive... but... it has been unplugged since I got it... so VERY old data...
When I imaged, Acronis detected the partitions as RAID partitions. Is it possible that where I imaged to a single drive as oppose to a volume and where it's booting off of an md device, that changing /dev/md1 to /dev/sda1 would have any positive effect?
I'm trying to get the output of df -h but server's too slow processing spam with a terrible config; but I THINK that my configuration is...
Does anybody have any suggestions?
