the kernel was unable to reread the partition table /dev/mdo


While loading 8.1 I am configuring raid and and then the individual file systems on each array this message pops up, "the kernel was unable to reread the partition table /dev/mdo" it wants me to reboot and when I do the raid partition table does not exit. I have make like I am configuring raid again but do not configure or delete choose finish and I then can see the raid partitons I set up but they are not exactly like I set them up.

It seems to me the partition table is not being written correctly.

I have tryed this on a home made machine and a dell server and I keep getting the same error.

I can load to one drive successfully but not to multiple partitions on drives configured with raid.

I must have fdisked the partitions 20 times and tried the reload that many times.

Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you creating the RAID as part of the installation process?

Is that the verbatim error message? I have never seen reference to a partition table as a device---Did it maybe say the partition table ON that device?

Personally, I do not see any value in RAID for installing the OS--it is just one more thing to go wrong. For reliable data storage, yes.

8.1? (Perhaps you have Ubuntu and not Debian...)
