General :: Adding The CentOS To Hard Drive?

Apr 29, 2011

I have an old Linux server, but now the hard drives are reformatted. I want to use this as a test server before I do anything on our live server. Our live server is running CentOS 5 so I would like to install CentOS 5 on this server, however the mother board does not seem to recognize the CD ROM any more, and I have tried other CD ROMs - So, the .iso file I down loaded from CentOS's mirrors can't be installed that way.I have a windows machine and I was wondering if I could just dump the .iso file onto one of the reformatted hard drive and then reinstall it into the server?

CentOS 5 :: Adding Previously Formatted LVM Hard Drive?

Oct 6, 2010

I added a formatted LVM hard drive ( hdb: WDC WD800BB-55JKC0, ATA DISK drive) to my current server. I need to review its contents, save any data I need, and then reformat the drive and extend the current systems LVM to include the new drive. I am unable to mount the new drive using the following steps and need to mount the LVM new drive. As I explain below, I have learned that I am not supposed to directly mount an LVM volume. Here is the work I have done to date,.

dmesg | grep drive
hda: MAXTOR STM3160215A, ATA DISK drive
hdb: WDC WD800BB-55JKC0, ATA DISK drive

Slackware :: Adding Another Hard Drive Changes Drive Id's In /dev/sd*

Mar 29, 2011

I have a dual boot computer with slackware_64 13.1 and windows.

I have a 120G ide hard drive that I need to add to my computer.

Adding this hard drive changes the drive device id's and slackware won't boot.

as installed, my drives look like this:

When I add the extra hard drive, it looks like this:

I know there is a way to make an initrid and to use the uuid identifications for the drives, and even use labels instead of the long uuid's, but I'm unfamiliar with this process, so I was hoping somebody that's done this before might point me in the right direction.

Ubuntu :: Adding New Hard Drive ?

Oct 23, 2010

I am having a problem booting my PC after adding a new SATA drive.

The PC has 3 drives.

SDA is a 500Gb SATA drive
SDB is a 1Tb SATA drive
SDC is a 160Gb IDE drive

The PC boots from the 160Gb IDE drive.

If I now install a 2Tb SATA drive the boot fails, it starts off OK as in the Motherboard boots from the IDE drive but sometime into the boot the / directory cannot be found.

If I boot from a live disk and check out the disks with gparted, I find that the new 2 Tb SAta drive is SDC and he 160Gb IDE drive is now SDD. I expect this is my problem but I cannot work out how to change it.

Note fstab is using UUID designations - not sure if this is relevant.

Hardware :: Adding A Second Hard Drive?

Jun 24, 2010

I've just bought a reconditioned PC but the HDD is of very small capacity. I have the hard drive from my old
PC before it died, and it has all my work on it. Can I simply cable up my old HDD in my new-ish PC so that I can access all the material on my old hard drive; the old drive is much larger and has spare capacity on it which I would like to use. Both HDDs are IDE, and the OS is Ubuntu 10.4.

Ubuntu Servers :: Adding A New Hard Drive With XFS?

Apr 8, 2010

I need some help on this one. I added an second internal hard drive to my file server, a 500GB WD. I want to use this drive as the primary storage drive for my file server, and I want to format it with XFS. I've found some guides showing me how to add hard drives, but they didn't really fit what I want to do. When I run fdisk -l this is what I get


Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0001af4f


Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table

When I first installed the openSUSE, I had to extract whole iso to sda4, because there was some kind of with CD (scratched or something like that), Now I want to add this part to grub, so that when I want to reinstall it, it will be ready for me.

General :: Move Smaller Hard Drive To Partition On A Larger Hard Drive?

Mar 16, 2010

My parents bought a new hard drive for a laptop that I've owned for several years. It's much larger than the current one, so I plan on splitting it up to dual boot it with Ubuntu.I have no problem with partitioning a drive (I always keep a LiveCD handy), but my question is this: how can I go about moving the existing partition to the new drive? This is a laptop, so I can't simply plug the new drive into another slot.

Also, even if I manage to move it, will Windows still work on the new drive in a larger partition? I've had this laptop for quite a while, and I've lost the recovery discs that came with it a long time ago. I also have a lot of software without CDs to reinstall them with. This makes not reinstalling Windows a high priority.

Ubuntu :: Grub Loading "Please Wait Error 17" Adding New Hard Drive

Sep 20, 2010

I'm getting a funny error after trying to add a new internal hard drive to my computer. After adding the new drive to the "Slave" slot GRUB will not load properly and gives me the following error Grub Loading, Please Wait Error 17 I've checked in my BIOS and the "Master" drive is still the one where grub is loaded. When I unplug the new drive the problem disappears and I can load Grub normally. I've searched the threads, but couldn't find a similar problem, or a problem that could be applied to mine. I've also tried loading the live CD, but my internal CD drive is broken, and the external one I have doesn't seem to recognized during boot time.

General :: Hard Drive Malfunctions When Other Hard Drives Are Connected?

Aug 23, 2010

I have a SATA drive that worked fine. Then I installed two more hard drives into my system. When these hard drives are installed, if I try to access the SATA drive in Linux, it will start lightly clicking and then the drive will become unavailable. If I power on the machine without the other two hard drives then it works fine. What could be causing this to happen? I don't think it's heat because the two hard drives are far away from the SATA drive.
