Linux and Windows on HARDWARE RAID 0 (3ware)
hi this is my config
-3ware Escalade 8506-4LP HARDWARE RAID Controller (SATA)
-4 WD SATA HDD's (250GB each)
-the first two WD's (1 & 2) and the last two WD's (3 & 4) are on seperate RAID0 partitions
- 80GB SEAGATE IDE
-i installed windows on the first two drives (i.e. the first RAID0), and it seemed to install the bootloader on the MBR of the Seagate IDE drive
-i installed linux on the second two drives (i.e the second RAID0), and this overwrote the MBR on the Seagate IDE drive.
Linux boots fine, windows does not
this is NOT a software raid setup so my first RAID0 is recognized as "sda" with windows on "sda1", while the second RAID0 is recognized as "sdb" with linux on "sdb2", while swap is "sdb1"
this works for LINUX in lilo.conf
boot=/dev/hda #(the seagate ide drive)
however, this does NOT work for windows:
as a result, im able to boot only into linux.. in the windows recovery console, fixmbr/fixboot dont seem to work. Please help...thanks for your time.
