Boot after Alternate Install Failed with 7.04

Bug #109050 reported by Mendez on 2007-04-22
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
debian-installer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

I'm installing 7.04 using the Alternate Installer onto a system that already has Software Raid partitions configured. The motherboard has 3 different SATA controllers in use which may be complicating things.

The drives all seem to be detected fine as follows (apologies for any omissions in my handwritten notes)

SCSI1 (0,0,0) - SDA - 500G
SCSI7 (0,0,0) - SDB - 140G
SCSI7 (0,1,0) - SDC - 300G
SCSI8 (0,0,0) - SDD - 140G
SCSI8 (0,1,0) - SDE - 300G

Ubuntu is to be installed into an existing 10 gig RAID1 partition on the two 140 gig drives. There is also a second RAID1 partition on those drives using up the rest of the space, which is to be mounted as storage, as are the other single drives. One of the 140 gig drives is set as the primary boot device in the bios and was being used for SUSE prior to attempting the install.

When booting after the install GRUB complains about a File Not Found error. Editing the grub boot options and changing the root line from (hd1,0) to (hd0,0) allows the system to boot.
