Mistake

I turned off my server to put in some RAM I dug up (which didn’t fit because the slots are off a little – I need to figure out why) and when I turned it back on disk 0 was dead. No spin, no blinky lights.

WTF?

So I dinked around a bit and discovered that it was truly dead. Hmm…

That’s okay, I said to myself, I’m running RAID 1! It should just boot off the other disk!

Sure…..

Bzzttt – No Boot Device Found!

I took me an hour of poking around on the web to figure out how to get the damned boot loader installed in the MBR. But once I figured that out, ba-da-bing! Up it came!

Now I need to find another 9GB drive. Sigh.
