So i installed ubuntu server 10.04.3 LTS x64 edition on my hp proliant dl380 g6. Installation goes fine and after restarting, i remove the usb drive that was used to install ubuntu and it hangs and says "attemping boot from hard drive c:" when trying to boot off the hard drive. It is raided 1+0.

here is my fstab config

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
#Entry for /dev/cciss/c0d0p9 :

everything seems to be ok.

ANY help would be great!

Did you go into the BIOS and make sure that you've set your RAID array as a boot device?

in the bios it says that the array is bootable. I had it running on a dl380 g5 no problems idk whats going on with this one

attemping boot from hard drive c:

You should not see this message. Something Windows related is on your drives.

Did you initialize all of your disks before installing ubuntu?

in the raid controller options, there is no initializing option. I did format the drives fresh so nothing windows related is on them (so i think)

Here is what it sounds like to me

You still have a windows boot record on a drive that did not get erased

The system is booting your hard drives in a specific order and your drive containing the ubuntu boot record is not at the top of the list

You need to go through your raid options, look for initialize. Every raid controller has this because it syncs the drives up so you dont loose data while raid is working

i realized that when i boot up with the usb device in, it seems like grub is loaded onto it instead of my / directory.

I had the same problem. Turns out the installation wrote grub to my usb disk rather than my first hard disk :).

Also may i recommend the use of http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ for writing your iso to usb? It saves me some minor bugs ;)
