comment Strange error message during CentOS 6.5 installation regarding disk containing BIOS RAID metadata?
Most definitely; that's why mine was a comment not an answer. I was giving a command that I've used in the past to nuke all the partitioning information, etc.

I would assume that dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M count=100 or something similar would have worked as well (that nukes the first 100MB of the disk - I don't know where the RAID data is actually kept).

comment shutdown ubuntu server after 2 days at midnight
I don't know the syntax offhand, but in an RPM I built for work, I used the at command to do something two minutes in the future. Basically, if apache was running, I shut it down and tell it to start in two minutes. Then I do all my config tweaking, etc. and know it will come back later.

comment Why is the AESni flag missing for my i5 CPU
You need a kernel that supports it, and it looks like the option needs to be enabled at kernel build-time. This would be independent of the CPU's microcode.
