comment How do I recover files from a single degraded mdadm raid1 drive? “not enough to start the array”
You appear to have both drives, so why are you trying to only use one of them?

comment Migrate an entire volume group LVM2 to RAID5
pvmove is NOT slow, nor dangerous. If the system crashes during the move, it will be restarted on the next boot.

comment How to add a ms-dos partition table to a loop device?
@Guerrio, because partition tools these days align the partition to a MiB boundary for performance reasons. Also you need to leave some room usually for the boot loader.

You can use the image without a partition table just fine.

comment Fresh installation of debian and raid10 array with SSD and HDD
@user62025, what documentation? They can be on the SSD just fine. What do you think people do who only have one drive, and it's an SSD?

comment GParted messed up my partitions
Did you happen to move the partition to the right when you shrunk it so there would be room at the start for windows?

comment How does systemd survive a kill -9?
@BruceEdiger, I too seem to remember being able to kill -9 init and induce a kernel panic. Sounds like it changed at some point.

comment How to rebuild a two drive raid 1 array on Linux?
It is unclear what you are actually asking here. Normally "rebuild" in this context would mean you had a drive fail, and you want to replace it, but you said both drives are still working.

comment Creating a ram disk on Linux
What sort of information? You run the command and it frees the ram, assuming you don't still have it mounted anyhow.

comment Creating a ram disk on Linux
They don't actually use any memory until you write things to them. The boot time limit is just the limit. Even after filling one you can free the memory back up with blockdev --flushbufs.
