I had a RAID 1 setup using by bios. Ubuntu was installed on the RAID array. I now want to move to a software raid using mdadm. I have deactivated the RAID 1 in the bios. I copied the operating system to a separate drive. I now want to create a RAID 5 with 3 disks. 2 of the 3 disks was previously in the fakeraid. Fdisk still shows the fakeraid and has somehow marked the raid as active.
I have two 3TB disks in a Windows 7 Dynamic Disk Mirror array (effectively, software RAID1).
Apart from being tied to the O/S (I can't mount the array in Linux, for example) - is there any difference in performance or reliability of Windows' software RAID offering vs my motherboard's BIOS RAID?
I can't use the motherboard RAID so I'm not asking "Which should I use?", more "What are the up/down-s
I've been facing a very annoying problem these last two days.
I'm trying to install linux on a server.
That server got a RAID Controller: Broadcom BCM5785 [HT1000] SATA
Everything is set perfectly, I successfully created a RAID1 array using the BIOS.
Problem is: any of all linux ditributions I tried are able to see it.
Since I have an hadware controller, it would be stupid to configure Fak
When in YaST/System/Partitioner I try to create RAID for my second HDD which is named "sdb".
My original "sda" hdd is partitioned as follows:
dev/sda, disk type
dev/sda1, linux swap, swap, swap
dev/sda2, linux native, ext3, /
dev/sda3, linux native, ext3, /home
Im about to upgrade form CentOS 6.x to v7 this weekend and I've also purchased 6x 3TB drives for this reason. I am going to use software RAID in order to deal with the RAID. I know maybe not the best solution, but for my home NFS server should be good enough.
My question is as I have chosen to disable the "secure boot" from my BIOS will I be able to create the 12TB drive?
