Actually I setup raid1 smoothly on Tyan KWE 2895 from the debian installer,
seeying only one virtual partition instead of the physical two, for each
partition that I setup, as it should be. Installation of kernel on / and all
other base components in other partitions, followed also smoothly. Grub on
I did not pay attention to the bios, assuming that it was not set for raid
(which raid should have the bios been setup to if there are so many varieties
of raid?). Do you think that the bios may now interfere with software raid1
by debian 64?
I am waiting for security updates, for compiling the kernel for my cpu, and
for debugging (by OPs) a pre-application that is needed in my computations.
Therefore, I have not yet checked the machine carefully. Any suggested test
to the raid1 purpose?
Thank you and cheers
