Thread: Can't install GRUB2. LDM has no Embedding Partition

    Default Can't install GRUB2. LDM has no Embedding Partition

    Dear people,

    I am a beginner in Linux and i have a question.
    My setup is as followed:

    2x 500 gb hard disk RAID 0
    1x 500 gb hard disk Which my BIOS also sees as a raid drive
    1x 1000 gb hard disk which my bios sees as a sata drive.

    So, I've installed Windows 7 on my 2x 500 gb hard disk with RAID 0.
    Now i am trying to install OpenSUSE 13.1 on my 1x 500 gb drive which my BIOS also sees as a RAID 0 drive.
    During the installation of OpenSUSE 13.1 at like 93% the following error occures:

    Error occurred while installing GRUB2.
    /usr/sbin/grub2-bios-setup: warning: this LDM has no Embedding Partition; embedding won't be possible.
    /usr/sbin/grub2-bios-setup: erro: embedding is not possible, but this is required for cross-disk install.

    I have no clue what to do now and hoped somebody could help me out .

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Ok what kind of RAID ie real hardware FAKE (BIOS assisted) RAID or software? I guess not software and probably FAKE

    The fact that a drive is marked as RAID 0 but not really paired could be the problem LOL


    BTW you know the RAID 0 is the most dangerous mode anything goes wrong with either drive will cause complete loss of DATA

    This means that your disk is or was configured for Windows Dynamic Disks. Please show screenshot of Windows Disk Manager with all your disks shown.
