comment How can I safely remove a SATA disk from a running system?
@Lekensteyn, the hdparm -Y will take care of that. That is basically what the system does every time you suspend or shutdown.

This isn't a grub issue per se; it is your initramfs that does not seem to understand how to open the encrypted volume.

@Ryan, writing to md0 should be the way to go, though sda1 should also work.

C++ hasn't been merged into the kernel ( whatever that's supposed to mean ). The kernel is written in C.

@userunknown, a missing return is NOT interpreted as return 0. Technically the program is mal-formed, but most compilers just issue a warning and the function ends up returning garbage.

comment Tools for Monitoring Steal Time (st)
Unless this is a momentary outlier, it looks like your isp is lieing to you and they are, in fact, running other cpu heavy vms on this machine, or there is something configured very wrong that is causing dom0 to hog a lot of cpu time.

comment Image HDD in Linux (functionality like Norton Ghost)
The question itself says dd is not an option, so that makes this a bad answer. Further, dd is not a backup tool; it is a swiss army knife. If you have dd not copy the whole drive, then you end up with a corrupt filesystem on the destination.
