Re: Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop CD booted system could not mount internal harddisks attached to a RAID motherboard



Hi Tom, Karl and All,

Yes Tom. Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop CD has the "nodmraid" boot option (press
F6 before boot).

I could now see and use all my internal and removable disks. Thanks.

One more point I want to be clear. If, later, I want to install Ubuntu
9.10 Desktop into my non-raid sda1 or sda2 partition. Should I first boot
the Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop CD with the "nodmraid" boot option and then install;
or should I first boot the Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop normally, apply the command
"apt-get purge dmraid" and then install ?

Happy to have your helpful comment.

Regards
Lawrence

I expect the command "dmraid -an" in a root terminal would do the job
of de-activating the detected BIOS RAID set while keeping the metadata of
the BIOS RAID set. (At this mean time I don't want to remove the settings
(metadata) in the RAID BIOS, I may remove it later.)

dmraid -a n will definitely not touch your data but I think that there
is another solution but cannot check.

When you boot from the Ubuntu live cd, you can choose some kernel
options with one of the f-keys. nodmraid might be one of them.
