I am trying to install SUSE 10 sp2 on a custom built server. The server has a 3ware 9650se serial ATA RAID Controller that has 7 hard drives configured in a Raid 10 + hot spare. The resulting array is 5.4 TB large.
I thought this might be important because I have SUSE 10 sp2 running just fine on a different computer.
While installing SUSE 10 sp 2 I get this error message while the system tries to install the boot manager:
GNU GRUB version 0.97 (640K lower/3072 upper memmory)
[minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. for the first word, TAB List possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device / filename]
grub>serup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 (hb0,0) (hb0,0)
grub>Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition[/INDENT]
My partitions are as follows:
/dev/sda1 305.9MB EFI Boot /boot
/dev/sda2 3.2GB Linux Swap swap
/dev/sda3 5.4TB Linux LVM
/dev/system 5.4TB LVM2 System
/dev/system/home 4.9TB LV /home K
/dev/system/root 500GB LV / K
I googled around an found that some people that have this problem booted into the Rescue System mounted the boot partition and installed grub that way.
#mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
#grub-install /dev/sda --root-directory=/mnt --recheck --no-floppy --force-lba
However this resulted in:
The file /mnt/boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly.
I need to install this older version because we have some software that will only run on this version.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
