I installed ubuntu server 10.04 on a PC with two HD drives 500 GB each. I used raid1 to provide data protection. The
/boot partition is installed also on a mirrored device
After the installation has completed, the system did not boot properly. I got the following error message:
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/<long characters> does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
Any idea what could cause such a problem?
I booted into rescue mode using the installation CD. Executing fdisk showed me the partitions, but it said "Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.". Can this be related to the problem at hand?
I re-installed ubuntu server without the Raid at all. The system booted as it should be! Also, I got the same error from fdisk after booting. So, this error should not be related to this problem of not being able to boot.
It is puzzling me. Can't I install ubuntu server 10.04 with raid1?!!
