    [SOLVED] Re: Unable to boot from degraded RAID array?

    Marking this solved--looks like the issue was simply the BIOS not properly failing over to the second drive. Manually forced it, then repaired the RAID array and reinstalled GRUB to sda.

    Thanks!
  2. [all variants] Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    Nevermind, I got it to work--turns out the BIOS just wasn't failing over to the second drive correctly. Did this, restored the RAID array, and reinstalled GRUB on sda.

    [SOLVED] Re: Unable to boot from degraded RAID array?

    Thanks. Guess I should clarify a bit--the new drive is totally bare, there is nothing on it. I literally put it in the machine with the intention of formatting, partitioning, and then adding to the...

  7. [SOLVED] Re: Grub2 error: "Loading Operating System... Read Error"

  12. [SOLVED] Grub2 error: "Loading Operating System... Read Error"

    Hi all,

    I recently had to reinstall Windows on my machine, which obviously took over the MBR. So I booted to a live-disk (on a USB key), then ran boot-repair to re-install Grub on all of the MBRs....
  13. [all variants] Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    Ugh, still nothing--tried setting SDC and SDB as first boot disk in BIOS, and it still gave me the "Loading operating system... Read Error" if the USB key wasn't inserted... Sigh.
  14. [all variants] Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    I believe it installed to all of the drives. I'm set to boot from SDA, which is my SSD first. Should this be changed?

    It's a bit silly that you've got to install a tool in order to change these simple settings.
