Tue Jan 01, 6: It is a 4 drive IDE controller. I haven’t switched to the 2. I had XP running OK a while back I have to think this is due to the RAID controllers. If you remove a disk from the controller but the software does not notice this event, it is also unable to notice the event when you plug another disk back to that location.

Apr 10, Posts: Selecting debian typically loads linux and its initrd into memory using bios calls, which will be striped as per the system setting.

Here’s what happened to me: This only seems to create the mapper devices when the array is activated, and that was during the initrd, so they’ve disappeared by now. It saw the drives OK when I used a floppy with the new drivers during the install.

Found a bad link? For example, I find the file bios I wiped everything out and tried again.


We don’t want NTFS as designed to be corrupted by free operating systems. I chose the Windows XP version.

Got the message during install “cannot find “battery””. Keep the floppy drive connected. Senior Technology Editor et Subscriptor.

Exit this hpt bios and the computer then starts from the XP cd. Tue Jan 01, 5: Run XP upgrade program in a running system. Running grub when linux is resident in memory prevents it using the bios routines, and consequently it sees the raw drives rather than the fakeraid array. There are more information about this issue on Microsoft support site: Sun Jan 06, 3: XP will be on hd1,0 and so your ext2fs will be found on hd1,1.

I let the native driver under XP grab it, but I have the 2.

Highpoint recommended that hard disks on IDE sockets were not connected at this time as XP insists on writing the bootloader to those drives instead of the fakeraid array if they were connected.

It is a 4 drive IDE controller. A meg partition is the max it seems to allow for FAT It installed fine, but I would get numerous lockups and other various bad things. Now when RAID is selected in the main award-bios, it loads grub from the rootsector, you can pick XP or a debian kernel. Crashed all the time. Firstly it’s recommended to backup the hpt information block and the rootsector from each disk.


Dabanshee, that sounds moderately familiar. Anyway, first attempt at clean install was a failure. Jul 20, Posts: At this point you’d want to have copied your operating system fully on the fakeraid partition, if you haven’t already done so.

In the initrd we set up dmraid and use it to mount the real root device. Oct 17, Posts: Belmont Ars Tribunus Angusticlavius Registered:
