I have a Raid 0 setup (striping) via BIOS not through software raid. When I install linux mint or Ubuntu it fails to install the boot loader or set the boot loader to boot. I get an error stating grub-install /dev/sda failed. On start up of a fresh install I get the blinking cursor and no grub boot menu.
I've tried a few different fixes with gpart and trying to use the advanced partition during install but I keep getting bootloader failed to load.
I've also used the
outputting only /dev/sda1 info which is the usb liveCD.
fdisk /dev/mapper/nvidia_djcffehh -l
will show the RAID drive with the boot partition, swap, and file system.
Not sure why it isn't working as it has worked in the past but since doing a fresh install it doesn't work properly.
Is it possible that because the liveCD USB is being mounted at /dev/sda that it is messing with the file system? Also I am using Linux Live USB creator. The USB driver appears as a hard drive on the bios and not as a removable device.
Any ideas would be helpful.
