Hi guys,

 

I'm running Ubuntu Server on a ssd, legacy mode, and when i add my 3 hdds, it results in constant reboots.

 

When using the ilo i see the following 'non system disk or disk error'

 

What can i do to resolve this?

 

Thanks

yes, originally i set it up in up a raid drive with just the ssd with Dynamic Smart Array B120i RAID and then it crashed.

 

Then it wouldn't recognize the sdd and so changed the sata drive to legacy. I heard that kills the ssd and so have changed it again, can't remember the exact name, i think its sata something.

If you are running AHCI the server will not boot from the ODD port if there are drives in the front bays. If you enable the B120i you can boot off the ODD SATA port. Unfortunately, I do not think there is a driver for Ubuntu. If you search the forum there are some post about creating a USB boot loader add running the OS from the ODD SATA port.

Is the ahci the last option after stat legacy and b120i?

 

There are drives in the front bay.

 

Can i create a bootloader from a micrsosd?

 

Thanks for the info.

Oh that's great.

 

I'll have a look around and see if anyone has done this with ubuntu.

 

Cheers
