Is there a guide to install ubuntu 12.04 in a fakeraid? (multiboot os)
What are the pitfalls or special points to be careful about?
Must I use the alternate iso version, or can I use the standard iso version and choose "something else" when partition/installation step arrives?
Should I pay attention where grub 2 goes or does ubuntu takes care of all this?
Are there commands that I can do with a live cd (without modifying existent raid) to answer or verify some potential questions/issues?
I REALLY don't want to redo or lose the already functioning raid with windows that I have.
My current system is: 3x 1TB into 2 volumes fakeraid intel ich9r: 1st volume = 50GB 2nd volume= rest of the 3TB
1st volume = partition 1, entire volume = windows os boot, partition type is mbr 2nd volume = partition 1, entire volume = has windows data, partition type is gpt
Intentions are to have dual boot windows + ubuntu: -Keep the volumes size and as is. -volume 1 = partition 1, entire volume, mbr = windows os/boot. -volume 2 = partitions in gpt: partition 1=200GB= windows data. Partition 2 rest of 3TB = ubuntu os + its data/apps
I've already done ,in a v.m., a dual boot setup as above that has grub into a mbr partition and that boots ubuntu located on another drive that is gpt. No problem. But of course I can't test fakeraid.
