Booting with GRUB from a (hardware) RAID
I just got my hardware RAID card in the mail, so I immediately dropped everything else I was doing and tried to get the working, just like any good, studious college student should do.
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:
Do I need to change something to enable it to boot now? Do I have to map something, or do I have to include the bios device code? Or is this not going to work?
title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.12-9-386
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386 root=/dev/hda3 ro quiet splash
title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.12-9-386 (recovery mode)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386 root=/dev/hda3 ro single
title Ubuntu, memtest86+
# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for a non-linux OS
# on /dev/hda1
title Microsoft Windows XP Professional
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).
