View Full Version : [ubuntu] Reinstalling Ubuntu to a mdadm RAID 1 array

September 6th, 2009, 09:23 PM
Last time I installed Ubuntu, I set up a nice software RAID 1 array with the following layout:

/dev/md0 "/" 15G
/dev/md1 "/home" 276G
/dev/md2 linux-swap 5G

I installed this using the Alternate CD. Now I want to reinstall Ubuntu, just replacing the root partition. So I've got a new Live CD and I want to know how to reinstall. I figured that seeing as the array is already partitioned and set up, there should be a way for me to install with the LiveCD that will leave the /home partition untouched, anyone know how I do this?
