This machine have 2 128 GB SSD drives (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EPGHE0E/ref=twister_B00JYFOKKS).
I managed to install Ubuntu with no problems on one SSD drive, but I am having following troubles with RAID setup. Here is the details:
- I boot from live USB (try Ubuntu option).
- Install mdadm:
sudo apt-get install mdadm.
- Create RAID:
- Run installer:
- It fails to install GRUB:
I also tried to install grub manually after installer failed:
- I looked how RAID is partinitioned:
- Added BIOS Boot partinition:
Tried to install GRUB:
$ sudo mount /dev/md127p4 /mnt
$ sudo mount /dev/md127p1 /mnt/boot
$ sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/md/127
Installing for i386-pc platform.
grub-install: error: diskfilter writes are not supported.
Tried solutions proposed in Diskfilter writes are not supported > What triggers this error? but still same error.
I tried with alternate install image, following this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x2rZe2Z9as, but, after reboot there are no boot options, BIOS opens without any boot option. I had a boot partition on
/dev/sda, GRUB was installed on it, but was unable to boot for some reason.
