I'm new to this, so please forgive the lack of technical ability.
I downloaded ubuntu live server 18.04.2, and successfully created a bootable USB stick.
I have two brand new WD Red 3TB drives, with the goal of creating a RAID 1 setup server with remote access.
I am running an old Dell 2.8ghz dual core. 6G memory (4x 2G, system reads only 6G)
I successfully got through manual partition as such: 10g /boot (drive 1) 16g swap (drive 1) 2.6T Raid 1, divided as 40g /; 2.4T /home
It installs, and begins a reboot. I remove the thumb drive to begin reboot, but no bootable drive is found.
BIOS is configured to read for hard drives to boot.
When I try and reboot with the thumb drive back in, I come to the installer screen, but the hard drives are back to "unused" format.
