I don't boot from software RAID so can't be sure of this but I believe that you will be better off doing your partitioning at the lower level not on top of /dev/md*. So create /dev/sda1 (... [by TrevorH]

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 64-bit 14.04 on my computer that already has Windows 7 64-bit, for dual-booting. I'm about to partition Windows so I can create another one for Ubuntu and have a third partition for shared storage, but I am a little apprehensive. My two hard drives are in a RAID 1 configuration, so I'm not sure if I should partition one or both or what.
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'm helping a friend setting up a website.
We use fysical server (with two equal harddisks of 500GB) from home.
I have some experience with Ubuntu and have recently switched to fedora.
I adviced using Fedora F16.
What I would like to do is:
- Create a RAID 1,
- Create LVM on this RAID
- Create some BTRFS partitions on this LVM
