    Grub Raid


    Hi all:

    I have 4 hard drives:

    1&2 - RAID0 - Windows XP
    3 - Storage
    4 - Ubuntu

    I can boot into XP or Ubuntu just fine but only be switching the drive ordering in my BIOS. I am having trouble getting GRUB to boot into XP. Can GRUB boot into a RAIDed Windows drive? Is there something extra I need to do?

    Thanks,

    John

    Is it a soft raid or a hard raid? If it is a hard raid it should be no problem, soft raid can be messy though.

    It's a software RAID setup on an nVidia motherboard (ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe).

    This is totally insane...

    I just asked the same question in the Ubuntu forum.

    Mine is a hard raid; i mean, thru enabled in the bios.

    I have grub loaded on one of the non-raid drives. I'm trying to figure out what GRUB commands are going to help me boot XP on the RAID 0 array.

    So far, I have no idea. Thanks for any help.
