I am new to Linux and fairly new to computers. My laptop is an ASUS N56V and has UEFI BIOS (I did not know this ahead of time). I downloaded fedora 17 to a live CD and set my BIOS to run the disk drive first. Went and installed fedora 17 as dual boot so I could still use windows by shrinking the windows partition and then using the free space for fedora.
I have a laptop with BiosRaid 1 and Windows 7 running. I do need this Windows, but most of my work I do on Ubuntu which is installed in dual boot.
Now I want to replace Ubunto by Fedora. So I run the installation and that worked fine but than it seems to destoy the Raid in some way. At least the Intel Storage Manager does repair it every time I boot Win7 after any Fedora session..
Since I started using Linux in 2000, I've been running all my systems with the BIOS clock set to UST time and just let the OS handle the time zone difference. I remember reading that it was the recommended way to have it set, although I also remembering not understanding why. It's just the way I've done it for years and years.
