View Full Version : [SOLVED] 11.04 on sata raid won't boot

August 20th, 2011, 01:41 PM
I have a Asus P5Q-E with SATA Raid (fake Raid ?) with 2 250Gb disks on Raid 0 and have Windows 7 installed.
Freed some space and want to install Ubuntu 11.04 alongside Win7.
Install choosing the "alongside" option. Installed...reboot...grub rescue (error no such device).
Hmm... Win7 disk recovery and got access to Win7 again. Where is Ubuntu ? Nowhere... the free space continues free (not partitioned) and found no evidence of ubuntu install.
Ok...second try with "something else" option, created /boot /swap and / partitions and installed grub on /boot partition (this time I want to use windows boot to choose...and if it fails the instalation again, at least I got Windows). Installed...reboot...grub rescue.
Again, the free space wasn't partitioned and the installer spend some time doing something but there is no evidence of ubuntu install.
Also grub seems to be installed on first disk (even when I choose /boot as device bootloader installation) - I've used EasyBCD to create an entry on win bootloader and when I choose that got grub> (not grub rescue>).

Can Ubuntu be installed on such conditions ?
Does anyone have a system like that working ? How ?

Gave up...
Bought a SSD drive and installed ubuntu on new drive.
