I've got a software raid 1 happening including /boot and am getting a grub 17 error. I can't seem to boot into the rescue system from a live disk because it can't load both disks of the raid. Any help greatly appreciated

If it matters this is on 9.04

I rebuilt the box using 10.04

It was a software bug in Grub 2. Glad to see it is fixed (I had to patch the binaries on a server I had to get it to work).

Another workaround is to connect a floppy drive. Doesn't need any actual floppies, just a drive.
