After Years using windows and wishing to enter the linux world, I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04. I have a Dell vostro 3460 with:
- 500 GB HDD
- 32 GB SSD mSATA (cache - not physical drive)
My former OS was Windows 7. When I changed it to linux ubuntu, during the installation, I encountered problems concerning my drives. Apparently because I had RAID between the drives linux installation didn't know how to handle this so according to this post i had to delete the RAID. This puts me in a very sad situation because I have an SSD drive without the ability to use it (although linux recognizes it as a separate drive during the installation and lets me install linux on it, because its not a physical drive - I can't set it as a bootable hard drive).
So now I have a linux OS on my 500GB hard drive and an unusable SSD drive. Is it possible to "re-RAID" the drives or any other way to make the SSD usable again and still use ubuntu?
Because im a noobie in linux (in general and ubuntu in particular) a detailed answer will be much appreciated :)
Thank you very much
