Installing Linux Mint with RAID 1

Postby ManjyomeThunder » Wed Jun 04, 2008 10:55 pm

I have a Dell XPS M1730 notebook that originally came with two HDDs configured with RAID 1 and Windows Vista installed. I am attempting to install Linux Mint but the installer sees the HDDs separately and only installs to one of them, and when I retart, it boots straight to Vista rather than going to GRUB. Can anybody help me install this?

Ubuntu - and so Mint as we are based on Ubuntu - has a problem with RAID
Search for RAID and the user name Fred for some advice
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
