I am totally lost as to how to fix this or what to do, I am about to just removed the raid all together. (Work stuff though, so Id rather not)\
I have a tower with 4 drives in it. 2 separate raids
2x 500gb 2x 1000gb
I want to install the OS on the 500 GB drives.
This is a HW raid, and the computer has had CentOS 5 installed before successfully.
I have tried using defaults, creating LVM's, using ext3 and manually creating /boot / swap etc.
In the last attempt I used both raids in default config which made an LVM and just got the grub prompt. When i manually created /boot /root and swap on the 500GB raid partition, I got
no root (hd1,0)
then the grub prompt
Tried re-installing Grub via Rescue CD, but still didn't work.
I am new to Hardware raid, I use mdadm at home. Anybody got any suggestions?
How can I install CentOS 5.5 on a raid partition?
The previous installation had the following config: /dev/md124 -1TB /dev/md124p1 just for data
/dev/md126 - 500GB /dev/md126p1 /boot /dev/md126p2 SWAP /dev/md126p3 /
One thing I do notice in GParted in the old config they were mounted on
/media/md124p1, but I couldn't use anything like that during HD layout config in CentOS. Little lost, if you need more information, please let me know
Appreciate the help!
