Raid-1/LVM/lilo doesn't boot. Stops an "LI"
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
I installed a LVM'ed RAID-1 over hda/hdb. I chose lilo for historical reasons.
On reboot I got to the old "LI" prompt instead of lilo. I reinstalled exactly
the same way but selected grub instead of lilo. This time everything worked ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Only tried lilo once, then went to grub.
Steps to Reproduce:
Was your /boot located on a regular partition or on LVM/RAID?
Yes, /, /boot and swap were LVM/RAID1
You shouldn't have been able to have /boot on the logical volume -- I get
"bootable partitions cannot be on a logical volume" error when I try.
Just to be clear, you had
/dev/hda1 - software RAID partition
/dev/hdb1 - software RAID partition
/dev/md0 - RAID 1, physical volume
Volume00 - Volume Group made up of /dev/md0
And then you had /, /boot, and swap on Volume00?
