    Default Nvidia RAID Grub Issue

    I have a SUSE 11.1 64 bit installation on an Nvidia RAID 1 setup. I can boot the system from the installation DVD with no problems but cannot get it to boot from the hard drive. The systems says 'NO BOOT DEVICE DETECTED'. I have tried YAST/Section Management/Other/Propose New Configuration and it does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is the device map:
    (fd0) /dev/fd0
    (hd0) /dev/disk/by-id/raid-nvidia_daidegae

    This is what the menus list looks like:
    title openSUSE 11.1
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/disk/by-id/raid-nvidia_diadegae-part3 resume=/dev/disk/by-id/raid-nvidia_daidegae-part2 splash=silent showopts

    Thnx,
    Jeremy

    Hi there,

    Is that a grub message you are getting or a BIOS message? If BIOS are you certain that the RAID is selected as a boot device? (I know, it's a corny question - but hey, it could be.)

    The config otherwise looks good, though I don't know why yast is not giving you a new suggested config - unless running from the live CD it just does not have the driver? In live mode, do you see a module for it and can you see the drives just with fdisk -l?

    Cheers,
    LewsTherin

    You are SO CORRECT! I knew it was something like that. The Dell BIOS was a little deceiving is all. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
