You must use the Ubuntu Alternate install disc to install to a RAID system. This is a text mode installer which is similar to the standard graphical installer but uses only the keyboard for navigation. You should read more about the alternate install method and raid in general before you take the Ubuntu raid plunge.

Here's a good article: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=408461

SOURCE: Installing ubuntu on Raid 0

Ok I have Duo booted ubuntu a couple of times now. When you were partitioning did you use the automatic or he manual? Since you have two hard disks, I will assume you use a desktop and you know how to take it apart. So, if you did automatics the bestt I can tell you is to swith your hard drives around physically and if that fails try switching g the boot menu order. If you used manual partitioning then when you were creating the ext3 partition you did not type / in the text box labeled Moint Point (that's the best I can help you) I hope this has fixed your problem. GO UBUNTU

SOURCE: gurb hangs after installing Ubuntu on raid 0

Hi,
I too upgraded from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 9.10 using wubi, the Windows ubuntu installer. Everything was fine, and I even admired the beautiful desktop, added KDE. I was very impressed until came the time to reboot. Grub hung. I entered the console and tried to repair: To no avail.
I reinstalled Ubuntu/Gnome without installing KDE. All went fine until the time to reboot. It hung again. After several trials, I decided to go back to Ubuntu 9.04.

From what I could gather on the Internet, it has to do with the new type of file system ext4. If only I had the choice to use it or not.

Since I was using wubi and was not offered the choice to install the ext4 file system, I do not know whether that choice is offered on a full scale installation without wubi. You might try to find out if you can customize the installation process and not select the ext4 file system, if possible.

One remark concerning the amount of swap space you are setting aside. In my opinion that's too much: I have a 2GB RAM, about 300MB swap space, and each time I monitor swap usage I find it very low to nil.

Concerning Ubuntu 9.10, I will wait until the bug(?) is fixed before upgrading. Good luck to you

I hope it helps
Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: will ubuntu work on evga 780i with raid 0 ?

That's an odd question, but Ubuntu will tolerate that fine. Check out the liner notes that come with your selected version and stepping of Ubuntu. Not valid in Puerto Rico during Jubilee. Do not tease Ubuntu. If rashes or stomach discomfort persist, stop using Ubuntu until you change pants, eat something and take a shower.
