how to install grub on raid 0?


Hi all,
I have a new machine running Win7, and the machine is using raid0 with two 500GB Hard Drives.
When I was installing a linux distro, i was stucked at the grub boot loader installation process, I don't know what am I going to do with the two drives.
How do I actually install grub on raid0 machine?

thanks.

For grub 9.97 aka grub-pc, there's a grub-dmraid patch, assuming fakeraid...

You haven't mentioned which Linux distro but according to your profile details, I am assuming, it should be debian.

Have you read this before, it is for ubuntu but not much different for debian.

but if you strictly want it for debian, it is here

If it's Windows software raid, not fakeraid, mdadm can handle it with some manipulation, but you'll probably be better off reconfiguring Windows to not use raid prior to installing Linux.
