When you put the boot loader in md0, you need a stock MBR , and an active partition that is part of md0.I suggest you read the RAID boot instructions in the wiki.

Apologies if this has already been covered; if it has I couldn't find it. First and foremost, this question does NOT pertain to a dual-boot system. I wish to set up a F16 system which uses GPT partitioning and needs a bios boot partition. I have two identical HDD's that will be set up as RAID 1 using software RAID.
I have a Vaio notebook with Windows 7 64 bit.
I want to dual boot it with Arch Linux.
I have three primary partitions: Recovery, System reserved (Active and Boot) and the Windows C: drive. I have resized the large partition with the the Windows C: drive.
Now I have an empty space where I could create the Linux partition, but I am lost as concerns the boot loader.
I have installed XP in my pc in Disk 1, and i wanted a dual boot with Centos, i burned the Centos image to cd and created the boot partition marked as primary with ext4, the / partition marked as p... [by veganjack]
I have a Raid 1 setup (striping) via BIOS not through software raid. When I install linux mint or Ubuntu it fails to install the boot loader or set the boot loader to boot. I get an error stating grub-install /dev/sda failed.
I have a Raid 0 setup (striping) via BIOS not through software raid. When I install linux mint or Ubuntu it fails to install the boot loader or set the boot loader to boot. I get an error stating grub-install /dev/sda failed.
I noticed something odd the other day.
On one of my Centos 6.5 boxes, the RAID card (which I installed after I installed the OS), was being assigned to /dev/sda1.
The boot disk (SSD) was assigned to /dev/sdb1/ & /dev/sdc1
I have a another Centos 6.5 box, and this one is dual booted with Win7
/dev/sda1 - boot partition for both OS's
/dev/sdb1 - Windows primary area
/dev/sdc1 - Linux swap
I am doing raid 1 on the same disk (not very good but better that doing no raid) So, I followed the instructions but doing them on the same disk (except install MBR on only one disk) and I obtained the message at the boot :Multiple active partitionsAfterwards, I removed the boot flag on the second partitions making the raid 1 array, the new message isBooting...Missing OS Is it really p
