I'm trying to install Debian Squeeze 6.0.5 on a new HP Proliant Microserver N40L with 4 GB RAM and 1.5 GHZ and 2 new Seagate BARRACUDA 2TB HDD (delivered yesterday). The installation stuck at the point of formatting the 2 TB HDD at 33%. I gave him 16 hours, then I aborted the formatting and started the SEATOOLS HDD Utility to check for errors. The HDD passed the check and I freshly ereased both hdd with zero's by the SEATOOLS Utility. Now I restarted the installation and it got stuck again at 33%. How long I need to wait for this formatting?
Partitions of Software-Raid 1: /boot 500MB ext2 / 1995.9 GB ext3 swap 4 GB
With Alt + F4 I can't see any errors in the terminal, because the whole time my USB-Devices appear..., Swichting back to Alt + F1, it keep staying at 33%.
Is there any way to speed up this formatting? The hdd are new, so there is no need of secure deleting etc...
I found now out, that resync is incredible slow: http://up.picr.de/11594927qr.jpg writing with 700 k/sec. How could this happen? -> Estimated time: 30 Days!
I set already echo 50000 >/proc/sys/dev/raid/speed_limit_min without any change...
Thank you very much!
