I have been trying to install fake RAID 1 (2 x 250GB SATA) with Ubuntu 7.10 (gutsy gibbon) for 10 days now!!! I have obviously tried it many ways. The closest i have gotten is by following instructions here http://users.piuha.net/martti/comp/ubuntu/en/raid.html
...I want to run Linux truly but i am at my wits end. eg tried not having swap partitian RAIDed...separate boot partitian...etc.etc
Situation---when boot for the first time have to boot from CD
----when disconnect 2nd hard drive system does not boot even though i have made sure Grub loaded on both drives.
---even though RAID volume broken (degraded as per BIOS) Ubuntu states all is well when reconnect drive (using 'cat /proc/mdstat' to check)
the only thing i can think to do is flash Bios but i am a tad scared of stuffing it up and besides i can not get any of the boot discs off the net to work. Motherboard manuf states to use Win 98/2000 boot disc to do it with. None work on my system. Could it have to do with fact i am booting off CD instead of floppy?
Oh which way to turn????
Any help greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!
