Re: Ubuntu Installer doesn't recognize my RAID 10 array
Hi there, welcome.
You have what is known around here as a Windows software RAID or fake RAID or dmraid. This is a different system to linux software RAID or md RAID or mdadm.
If you are installing 11.04 it has the dmraid drivers already installed.
I dont have any experience of this but if you boot live CD you should be able to see and mount the array in the Places menu. If not, open a terminal and run sudo dmraid -ay first. Then run the installer and hopefully the partitioner will see the array as a single device. There may be difficulties with the Grub boot loader installation: I believe it needs to be installed to the device name of the array, /dev/mapper/xyz
I would use Windows to reduce itself to make empty space for Ubuntu rather than GParted.
