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
I have a Fedora 20 installation that I would like to get on software raid. I have done this many times over the years, but this is the first time I've attempted it with dracut and grub2. Things are not as simple as they used to be!
The installation is super simple, with /boot and / on a single partition.
