Booting with GRUB from a (hardware) RAID
The RAID bios detects the harddrives ok, and the computer gets to GRUB alright, but when I try to boot into Windows it just sits there (actually didn't try booting to Linux...can do though if needed).
Here's what my GRUB menu.lst file looks like at the bottom:
title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.12-9-386 root (hd0,2) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386 root=/dev/hda3 ro quiet splash initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.12-9-386 savedefault boot title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.12-9-386 (recovery mode) root (hd0,2) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386 root=/dev/hda3 ro single initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.12-9-386 boot title Ubuntu, memtest86+ root (hd0,2) kernel /boot/memtest86+.bin boot # This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for a non-linux OS # on /dev/hda1 title Microsoft Windows XP Professional root (hd0,0) savedefault makeactive chainloader +1
BTW, in the system BIOS I set the RAID controller as the first harddrive in the harddrive boot sequence.
FYI, I'm RAID 1ing two drives (same size - 80GB).
