Installing openSuSE: grub complaining on a hardware RAID

Aug 14, 2009, 15:01 (0 Talkback[s])

"As a matter of fact I didn't have too much of a problem (and the installation was pretty fast, congratulations for openSuSE for that).... except for the fact that when the installer was about to finish, on the part where grub was going to be installed on the MBR, it would fail miserably with an error 21. It would complain about not being able to find a certain device. I was given the option to retry installing grub without going though the whole installation procedure all over again. I tried a couple more times with a few option changes but I always got the same error.

"I then went into grub (by calling grub as root on the terminal) to see what I could do. I tried to change the root device, but when I wrote root and then hit the tab key to see the available devices, no one showed up. Could it be because I'm working on a live CD and some of those partitions were just created?"
