lilo / raid1 / mbr problem
Running debian testing/unstable with 2.6.9
I wanted to reconfigure a server so that it used a raid 1 array instead of
just one disk.
This is what I did:
Reconfigured the system so that it boots from /dev/hdc
Created a raid 1 array (/dev/md0) on /dev/hda (/dev/hda1, just one raid
partition plus one swap partition). Marked the second disk as 'missing'.
The idea is to add this drive to the array once the OS is transferred to
the raid array.
Created a reiserfs filesystem on /dev/md0.
Mounted /dev/md0 under /mnt and copied the running OS to /dev/md0.
Then, when I try:
lilo -r /mnt
Warning: Int 0x13 function 8 and function 0x48 return different
head/sector geometries for BIOS drive 0x81
Fatal: Unable to open mb
I've googled around, but I can't find an answer. I've did this 'changing to
raid' thing serveral times, all went OK. I've checked the disk, replaced
the disk... I'm out of clues... Any hint or help would be very appreciated!
