hi all, long time no see
im setting up some data servers with Fedora9. i have 4 640Gb SATA2 drives in a hardware RAID 10 configuration.
during install, Fedora see's only one drive, which it should (which means no SW raid at all). however, after install finishes, and reboots, it freezes/halts saying "GRUB" and will not go any further.
i have tried using linux rescue, using the following commands:
# chroot /mnt/sysimage
# vim /boot/grub/grub.conf
(turned off the "hidden menu" and increased timeout to 15 seconds)
(the dejfaajhaa bit is a timestamp as far as i can tell. when install asked for disks to be initialized, it showed this location of the disk. i assume this is due to the RAID)
which gets me a bit further...
after reboot, it goes on to say "error 2", which according to this
2 : "Selected disk doesn't exist"
This error is returned if the device part of a device- or full filename refers to a disk or BIOS device that is not present or not recognized by the BIOS in the system.
so it cant find the disk.
whats my next steps?
looking around says i need to post more info, so here you are.
