Fedora Hardware :: Raid Not Detected - Only Showing Seperate Drives / Fix It?

Jan 6, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 12 for use with Amahi HDA. Before installing on the Hard drive I used the LIVE CD to test it out. While using the LIVE CD I could see all my HDD's. My file system, my 2nd Hard Drive, and my Raid 0 Configuration. (2 250GB drives) and could browse all my files on those drives.

After installing the full version on my hard drive, my RAID drives are showing up as seperate drives. I have a Asus P4P800 board using hte SATA raid. I know its FAKERaid and not a true hardware raid.

My goal is to restore the Raid in Fedora and make those drives active. However, i dont want to lose any of the data on those drives. To make sure I wasn't an idiot, i rebooted withthe LIVE CD again and verified that I could see the Raid Array.

Ubuntu :: Hardware RAID Showing As Seperate Partitions After 10.04 Upgrade?

Sep 27, 2010

I have been trying to upgrade my server to Ubuntu 10.04 since it has come out, but I hit a roadblock with my hardware RAID I have two JBODs that work perfectly in Ubuntu 9.10 x64 - but show as seperate, unformatted partitions (one per hdd) in Ubuntu 10.04 x64.

Ubuntu :: Intel RAID Controller - Showing 2 Drives?

Apr 24, 2010

I shall start off by saying that I have just jumped from Windows 7 to Ubuntu and am not regretting the decision one bit. I am however stuck with a problem. I have spent a few hours google'ing this and have read some interesting articles (probably way beyond what the problem actually is) but still don't think I have found the answer.I have installed:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu lucid (development branch)
Release: 10.04
Codename: lucid

I am running the install on an old Dell 8400. My PC has an Intel RAID Controller built into the MB. I have 1 HDD (without RAID) (which is houses my OS install) and then I have 2 1TB drives (These are just NTFS formatted drives with binary files on them nothing more.) in a RAID 1 (Mirroring) Array. The Intel RAID Controller on Boot recognizes the Array as it always has (irrespective of which OS is installed) however, unlike Windows 7 (where I was able to install the Intel RAID controller driver) .Does anyone know of a resolution (which doesn't involve formatting and / or use of some other software RAID solution) - to get this working which my searches have not taken me too?

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot 2 *seperate* Drives \ Several 1.5TB+ Drives, And One Of Them Is Not Being Used?

May 1, 2011

I've used it once before but got fed up with the boot asking me everytime I turned my laptop on because I wasn't using it enough. I have Windows 7 on drive C . I want to keep it on drive C. I have several 1.5TB+ drives, and one of them is not being used. I want to dedicate it to Ubuntu, and be able to do a dual boot with my Windows 7 install. Is this possible? If it is, what about when this drive is not connected to my laptop? Will that mess up the boot process?

Hardware :: Dual Boot With Dos Absolute Two Seperate Hard Drives?

Jun 25, 2010

Ok so first off my hardware Asrock 775dual-vsta Master and Slave hard drives on primary IDE Absolute Linux 2.6.33.3 ; Dos 7.1 (yes Dos 7.1 by itself no windows whatsoever) Absolute Linux=sda1 ; Dos=sdb1

Ok so I can't boot into dos from lilo boot menu. It boots fine however if I tell the bios to boot from the second HDD first (DOS). But it's inconvenient to tell the bios every time on power-up to choose the second hard drive as the first boot device. Here is my lilo.conf boot section

# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/bzImage
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
root = /dev/sda1

[Code]...

Either way when I boot from the first hard drive (linux hard drive) and lilo pops up, I select dos and hit enter then nothing... It just sits there and ctrl-alt-delete can't reboot my comp as it's frozen.

I don't wanna have to tell the bios to select my dos hard drive as my primary boot device everytime I wanna boot dos. I wan't my linux hard drive to be my primary boot device and have my dos hard drive selectable from the lilo boot menu. Why can't I do that? What am I doing wrong? I thought this was easier than dual booting from a single hard drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 And Windows 7 Dual Boot With Seperate Hard Drives?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm a n00b at dual booting and I plan on installing Ubuntu 10.04 on a separate hard drive than my Windows 7 64 bit one in a dual boot situation. I have read that you can do this by unplugging the Windows hard drive, install Ubuntu on the other one, and than plug the Windows hard drive back in and everything will be fine and dandy. Is this correct? If it is, will I have to manually set the Primary and Secondary drive (in the BIOS I think?), or will it automatically do that.

Ubuntu Servers :: RAID-1 OS Drives - Setting Up A Backup Procedure For The OS Drives

Jan 18, 2010

I'm breaking into the OS drive side with RAID-1 now. I have my server set up with a pair of 80 GB drives, mirrored (RAID-1) and have been testing the fail-over and rebuild process. Works great physically failing out either drive. Great! My next quest is setting up a backup procedure for the OS drives, and I want to know how others are doing this.

Here's what I was thinking, and I'd love some feedback: Fail one of the disks out of the RAID-1, then image it to a file, saved on an external disk, using the dd command (if memory serves, it would be something like "sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=backupfilename.img") Then, re-add the failed disk back into the array. In the event I needed to roll back to one of those snapshots, I would just use the "dd" command to dump the image back on to an appropriate hard disk, boot to it, and rebuild the RAID-1 from that.

Does that sound like a good practice, or is there a better way? A couple notes: I do not have the luxury of a stack of extra disks, so I cannot just do the standard mirror breaks and keep the disks on-hand, and using something like a tape drive is also not an option.

Fedora :: F13 | XFCE | Internal Drives Not Showing On Desktop?

Oct 2, 2010

Running:Fedora 13kernel 2.6.34.7-56.fc13.i686desktop: xfce 4.6.2Problem: I have a 1TB drive (SATA) with 2 partitions. The partitions/volumes don't show on the desktop.The volume names are:MASSIVEBACKUP.

Facts:1. When I login using GNOME, both volumes (MASSIVE & BACKUP) are listed on my desktop2. My /etc/fstab has long since been edited to reflect these drives3. Using XFCE: Although the volumes don't show on the desktop, they are indeed mounted. I can see them when performing a "df -h" as well as when opening "File System" and drilling to /media - they are both there. I can also access the contents of both volumes within "File System" (using Thunar).4. Using XFCE: I can access both volumes via command line5. Using XFCE: External drives are not affected. I have one external USB drive that shows and when I plug my Android phone, it too shows on the desktop.

After some exploring, I installed the following:Oct 01 22:17:29 Installed: xfce4-mount-plugin-0.5.5-4.fc12.i686I then added "Mount Devices" to my panel, but...as you've probably figured out - they're already mounted.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Configure A Set Of Hard Drives As A RAID Configuration?

Apr 21, 2010

I am currently trying to configure a set of hard drives as a RAID configuration. My system is running with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.1 as the base OS. I am booting from CD. I am trying to image a set of drives that have not been imaged before. When the GUI dialog window for disk setup is displayed, it shows a default disk layout including a LVM slice. In the disk layout is a /boot partition already. It is not what I would like so I edit it to be the size for my system and make it the primary partition. I also select it to be a software RAID. I then add three more partitions for my drive 'A' all of type software RAID and NOT primary partitions.

At this point my drives have the correct number of partitions except for showing the LVM slice. I select 'RAID' again, followed by selecting 'Clone a drive to create a RAID device ...' followed by 'OK'. I then get a dialog to select the source and target. i select my drive 'A' to be the source and 'B' to be the target followed by 'OK'. An error dialog is received stating that all the partitions are not of type software RAID. The disk partitions are all type software RAID except the extended LVM slice. I can not get past this point and I am following a procedure written some time ago by a person that is not available.

Fedora Installation :: Software RAID With Advanced Format WD-EARS Drives?

Dec 31, 2010

My System Intel Core Duo E5300 Mobo - Gigabyte G31M-ES2L 1GB DDR2 800MHz RAM 4 x WD20EARS HDD I have been trying to install Fedora or Ubuntu for over a week. I thought it would take an hour and i would be away. I have been trying to install using the mdadm Software RAID feature. Everytime it takes about a day to format the drives and then i get an installation error. The drives state they are ready to use as is on any operating system other then WinXP, but this does not appear to be the case.

I am very new to Fedora... I have been doing some reading.[URL].. That information has been promising. I have been able to get into Fdisk off the live CD but i can't figure out how or if it is possible to do what i want it to.

Has anyone had any luck getting these drives to function correctly in a software RAID? I have had good luck with WD drives in the past and just assumed these drives would do what i wanted to but alas i have been proven wrong.

The partitions i wanted was...
- A 2GB swap parition
- A 10 GB RAID 1 partition for Fedora
- The remaining space as a Raid 5 for files.

Am i just banging my head against a wall here, or is this possible.

Fedora Installation :: Using The F10 Live CD To Setup Software RAID 1 Between 1 Hard Drives For Redundancy & Fstab

Apr 15, 2009

I have been battering with FC10 and software RAID for a while now, and hopefully I will have a full working system soon. Basically, I tried using the F10 live CD to setup Software RAID 1 between 1 hard drives for redundancy (I know its not hardware raid but budget is tight) with the following table;

[Code]....

I set these up by using the RAID button on the partition section of the install except swap, which I set-up using the New partition button, created 1 swap partition on each hard drive that didn't take part in RAID. Almost every time I tried to do this install, it halted due to an error with one of the raid partitions and exited the installer. I actually managed it once, in about...ooo 10-15 times of trying but I broke it. After getting very frustrated I decided to build it using just 3 partitions

[Code]....

I left the rest un-touched. This worked fine after completing the install and setting up grub, reboot in to the install. I then installed gparted and cut the drive up further to finish my table on both hard drives. I then used mdadm --create...etc to create my RAID partitions. So I now have

Fedora Hardware :: Motherboard Configuration - Raid Setup Utility Shows Drives Out Of Order

Sep 19, 2010

I just went out and bought stuff to build a new computer, and among the parts was a Gigabyte ga-890fxa-ud5 motherboard ([URL]). The board has 3 (well, 4, but we'll stick to the 3) main sata interfaces, with 2 slots per interface, allowing 6 sata drives. In slot_0 i put my blu-ray drive, in slot_1 i put my drive that will host the OS and its partitions, and that is in the sata connector pair on the left. The middle sata connector pair (slot_2 and slot_3) i have 2 2tb drives, and in the sata connector pair on the right (slot_4 and slot_5) i have 2 1.5tb drives.

Fedora Installation :: Raid On Dell R210 - Install Driver - Sees 2 Separate Drives?

Jun 4, 2011

Fedora is having trouble identifying a raid partition, it sees them as separate drives. I got drivers from dell, but during a Fedora dvd install, it mentions nothing about a place to install extra drivers.

When it says it must "initialize" the drives, Fedora then breaks the dell bios raid. How to either install the dell drivers or make Fedora see the raid partition as one?

Software :: Software Raid Not Showing Increased I/O Throughput On Fedora 12?

Mar 27, 2010

I have implemented level 5 software raid (of 4 partitions on a SINGLE external hard disk). Implementing it on a single hard disk doesn't serve much purpose, I understand, but I did it for demonstration purpose only. The problem is when I read from the raid device into my laptop's hard disk, the time taken to transfer a 900 MB file is about 4 minutes (4 GB RAM) whereas the rime taken to transfer it from a pen drive is 43 seconds. Isn't raid supposed to work faster. However, the write to the raid device is faster than to a pendrive. Shouldn't it be taking data in parallel from the 3 partitions (as even a single disk has multiple heads) ?

Ubuntu :: Partitions/drives Sometimes Not Showing?

May 14, 2011

I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 from 10.10 about a week or so ago and since the upgrade when I boot into Ubuntu (I am running a dual boot Ubuntu and win7) other HDD's and partitions often do not show up anywhere on my system. For example I have an ntfs partition that I store music on so I can access it on either windows or ubuntu, as well as other partitions. When this issue occurs even my dvd drive appears not to exist. I have to reboot my machine sometimes 4 or 5 times before the drives/partitions show again. I had no issue like this before running the upgrade or using earlier versions of Ubuntu.

Debian Hardware :: DVD And USB Flash Drives Not Detected

Oct 16, 2010

For quite a while I didn't have any problems and everything worked just fine, until I had to upgrade to KDE 4 from 3.5. And that, as you understand, required a major upgrade of quite a lot of stuff (not only the GUI, but also some of the system including the kernel). After I spent a while fixing up the mess (it works ok now, mostly), I still have quite a problem with optical drive and external disk detection.

Problem 1. DVD drive.
Sometimes it works fine without any errors - the system detects the drive and can write and read the mounted DVD (that's exactly how it was before the upgrade). And sometimes (or should I say most of the time?) there is no drive detected.

Problem 2. Flash drives.
I connect a flash-disk. It gets get detected, mounts automatically - yahoo! But.If I start the system with the drive already connected, then the device is not even recognized (doesn't appear in /dev). So I have to replug it.Used to work fine before.Something tells me that the problems have a common cause. Correct me if I am wrong. Please help!

Ubuntu / Apple :: No Disk Drives Detected?

Jan 6, 2010

am using the community build of Ubuntu 9.10, I have an old as dirt Power Macintosh G3 Blue And White, and I can't get it to install. I tried the live CD first of course, and now the alternate. Both tell me that no disk drives detected, even though Mac OS 9, X, and Fedora all detect both my 40gb seagate, my 120gb seagate, and my 120gb maxtor.I am trying to get this running with some sort of linux for a school project.What is happening is it asks me what driver to use, and if I select the bottom option that it is none of the above, it asks me to load a driver from a USB flash drive, which I don't know what driver to use. They are all standard IDE devices hooked into the built in bus. I obviously can't move past this point.

When I first got it, I started out running Ubuntu 5.10 way back in 2005. I was thinking of downloading and burning 6.06, and upgrading from there.

Hardware :: USB Sticks And Drives Not Detected By Bios?

Apr 10, 2011

To start with I know this is not a linux problem, it is purely hardware.After the computer has been on for a while and then restarted bios does not detect in POST the usb sticks that it is supposed to use to boot from. his is obviously a problem as bios can't use something it can't see to boot from.I'm wanting to know if anyone else has had a problem like this with my hardware? I suspect it is the Asus M4A78LT-M LE that has a usb detection problem, since I've tried plugging the same sticks in to another pc and they do not have the same issue on that pc.

Debian :: 8.1 Second Monitor Is Detected But Only Showing Black Screen

Jul 30, 2015

I've recently installed Debian v8.1 and installed Nvidia driver 340.46. In nvidia-settings I am able to enable my second monitor and enable it/set it's position..etc. My second monitor is not being detected in Debian Display and is 'on' but only showing a black screen. I've tried researching and implementing various 'fixes', but I'm not having any luck.

I'm running dual GTX 570's with a monitor plugged into one each (DVI). I noticed in my xorg.conf under Section "Screen" I have an option "MultiGPU" "Off"; would this be part of the issue?

I've tried:
- purging all nvidia drivers and re-installing
- installing different versions of nvidia drivers
- add nomodeset in grub

Ubuntu Networking :: Asus USB-N13 Not Showing As Active But Is Detected

Apr 30, 2010

I recently purchased an Asus USB-N13 and am having some trouble getting it setup. I have followed this post [URL] including downloading the driver version, but I am now a little stuck. This is a laptop which used to have a Netgear Wg111v2 wireless USB adapter (laptop does not have internal wireless). That adapter died so I purchased the Asus. The day I purchased the Asus adapter they were both plugged in at the same time for a short period - not sure if that is relevant or not but just thought I should let you know. Here is some output from various commands:

Ubuntu Installation :: SSD Drive Not Detected - Zero Drives Show Up

May 15, 2010

I can't finish installing Ubuntu 10.04. I have a Corsair Nova 128 GB solid state drive, the 128 GB model of this series, to be precise. I have an ASUS P5N-T Deluxe motherboard. It has a six xSATA 3 Gb/s ports NVIDIA MediaShield RAID controlelr on it. In Disk Utility, it shows up as nVidia Corporation MCP55 SATA Controller, using the sata_nv driver. I have the 128 GB drive plugged into one of these ports. I have disabled RAID completely in the BIOS.

When I boot the Live CD and run GParted, the drive shows up fine. I've got a 70.81 GiB NTFS partition (Windows 7), a 4.00 GiB swap partition, and a 44.43 GiB ext4 partition, onto which I had planned to install Ubuntu 10.04. I created the swap and ext4 partitions earlier, but at one point, that was unpartitioned space.

The problem is that when I run the Install app to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my SSD, when I get to step 4 of 8 (Prepare partitions), exactly zero drives show up. A while ago, I had a couple of Seagate 1.5 TB mirrored drives plugged into two of the ports, and they showed up fine, but no 128 GB SSD. In trying to troubleshoot this problem, I unplugged those and just left the SSD, and zero drives showed up. I disabled RAID in the BIOS, and it still doesn't show up. I moved the SSD from the port it was plugged into and plugged it into one of the ports that one of the 1.5 TB drives was plugged into. It still doesn't show up.

Nuts and bolts of it: Seagate 1.5 TB drive plugged into port: no problem. Corsair Nova 128 GB SSD plugged into port: doesn't show up. But again, only in the Install utility. In Disk Utility under SATA Host Adapter/MCP55 SATA Controller, I see 128 GB Solid-State Disk/ATA Corsair CSSD-V128GB2 listed plain as day. In GParted, I see a 119.24 GiB /dev/sda device with the partitions I've created on it plain as day. I can pull up a terminal and mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/ssd without any problem and access files on it. But for whatever reasons, the Install program and only the Install program can't see it. I'm dead in the water. Obviously, I can't use Ubuntu if I can't install it. What can I do to get this disk drive detected?

Hardware :: Hard Drives Are Not Detected Past Ubuntu 6.06

Jan 1, 2010

I couldn't decide if this went in hardware or software, as it is both in a way. If I try to install 9.04 (I've been trying for a few months, and 9.10 is kind of slow) it doesn't see my hard drive. It's not even listed in the fstab! It's like it's invisible. However, If I install ubuntu 6.06 it can see it fine! This is a kernel problem, as it occurs with other flavours of linux as well, but openSolaris and any BSD See it just fine.

One other interesting factor is this: If I update to 8.10 LTS and choose the third kernel on the list, it runs fine! There is another snag though. In that kernel of 8.10 it can't see my keyboard, unless I bring up a terminal!

The preferred solution would be this. Find a way to make it work, possibly incorporating it into the kernel. Also, It's not a bad disc. I used the same one for two other pcs, and there were no issues whatsoever.
