ok following your how to -How_To_Set_Up_Software_RAID1_On_A_Running_LVM_Syst em_(Incl__GRUB2_Configuration)_(Ubuntu_10_04)
I loaded my system initially on sdb so the instructions were just reversed.


On page 25
Now we reboot the system and hope (pray)that it boots ok from our RAID arrays:
reboot
once rebooted got the following error

error:file not found
error:you need to load the kernel first
failed to boot both defaults & fallback entries
Press any key to continue

I tried putting in the Unbunttu 10.04 boot disk and tried a rescue, but I was not sure what to do and went thru and got to a shell and then exited as I did not know what to edit?
Help looks like I might be reloading system again for the 5 or 6 th time

thanks really do appreciate all your help.

You can try to rescue your system with Knoppix. This tutorial might give you the idea: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-res...d-with-knoppix

I tried using gparted to repair the system and was unable to do so. So I went ahead and blew away both drives and now have a fresh reloaded system. I may try the raid distribution for Ubunto 10.04 again before I spend time configuring system. Thanks again for all your help

falko do you have any idea why the system blew up like it did? I would like to have drives mirrored in case one fails and would be willing to try the raid distribution for Ubuntu 10.04 again. But I would like maybe some ideas if possible on what went wrong?

Thanks

Not sure, but maybe you mixed up drives somewhere along the road, or your grub or /etc/fstab configuration was wrong.
