Re: 12.04 How Do You Mount a RAID 5 Partition?
You are right, the raid 5 partition would not likely survive the MB swap. The 12.04 should see the raid 5? Try querying it from a live cd terminal with the command - sudo dmraid -ay. The response should be that the raid is already active. If so, the raid partition should be listed as a folder on your panel at the left edge of the screen. If it isn't we will have to explore the problem further!
