Legacy boot can be on either MBR of GPT partitions.

I wasn't really sure about it, that's why I ask. Thanks!

Instead of using fancy words, all of you few of you. Have not contributed to the thread at all. Thanks for the fancy words.

Edit:
before more fancy words get spilled n you're to lazy to read the bug comment section i'll put it here and sum it up for you.
Code:
sudo apt-get install mdadm
sudo mdadm --assemble --scan
sudo mkdir /target
sudo bash
mount /dev/md126p5 /target
cd /target
mount -t proc proc proc/
mount -t sysfs sys sys/
mount -o bind /dev dev/
cp /etc/resolv.conf /target/etc/
chroot .
apt-get  install mdadm
update-grub
sudo apt-get install grub
Quote:
And for grub configuration the only options of installing grub to were three devices. and I selected all three with the space bar.
/dev/sda
/dev/sdb
/dev/sdc
No raid arrays showed or anything.

Edit:
Maybe its a partitioning error.

Edit:
I think I might be missing /boot partition.

Edit:
Maybe it's not because of not having the /boot partition but maybe because LM with mdadm installed and configured, my /dev/md126p5 partition does not show up listed like sda sdb sdc list does. Hmm. I have no idea.

Edit:
Based on this how-to, I am doing it correctly. Grub2 even though mdadm is installed and configured in chroot . does not pick up my /dev/md126p5 partition to install grub2. Also, selecting /dev/md126p5 from partition window of the install of the OS and grub, the grub selection I can select but fails to install.

Edit:
I bet if I cleaned or wiped the raid 0, recreated it and install just LM or Ubuntu it won't boot. Because grub would fail to install.

Ahhh so apparently you are not a quitter after all. Good ! thumb.gif I was hoping to spur you into seeing that the bug is immaterial until the basics are dealt with. There are rules about partitioning and the mixing of GPT and MBR, further complicated by modern settings in UEFI. Regardless of any bugs, what can be recognized and booted depends on whether or not you are set to UEFI or to "Legacy". So lets start there, with information as to what you are dealing with on the most fundamental level or it will be near impossible for any would be helpers to be "on the same page" as you. So if you are willing to start fresh and get this worked out, let's begin with correct procedure, OK?

If so, what is your UEFI set to? Did that setting ever change? How, under what conditions, were your GPT and MBR partitions created?

It is set to uefi. Nope. Through windows7 install. Then shrunk and then remaining partitions were made through gparted.

I think i found the problem. intel raid rom is keeping stuff in memory. I hooked my raid card up and had no eroors in gparted. As soon as i delete the array from marvel raid card, hook both ssds to the intel raid boot up gparted i get a ton of errors and gparted wants to mount each ssd and the raid array. This does not happen on the marvell raid card.

Things that i have tried.
Cmos reset
Pulled mobo battery reset cmos.
Disconnected all power for an hour
reinstalled uefi firmware with different intel orom versions.
Secure erased both ssds

Any clues?

Something happened. This now, see the full array name? Now the third pic is from a few days ago which is how it is suppose to be.

This is fun. I just got the nvidia driver installed. So far so good. Gonna work on F@H now and set it up for the next FAT "foldathon".

And ubuntu looks damn sharp on my monitor.

Great... win7 somehow by itself fixed the bootloader to load windows and ubuntu boot loader is not shown in my uefi.
