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]

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 four Western Digital advanced format drive of 2TB. Now i want to create a RAID 5 array on my server. If i'm correct i have to partition the drives with parted because fdisk is not supporting gpt partitions which is needed for 2TB drives:
parted --align=opt /dev/sdx
mkpart primary 0% 100%
is this correct?
I have two drives that are setup as RAID1 using software RAID on Redhat. I added two additional drives (same size) and I would like to conver the RAID1 to a RAID10. The problem I'm having is adding the last drive to the array.
Openvz is not supported here but this sounds like you have a software RAID 1 and the RAID is broken so that it boots off the old out of date copy. Look in /proc/mdstat and check its status there. [by TrevorH]
