Re: 1-TB SATA drive as F9 root/boot drive

Eric,

I have a 2TB Raid1 array running Fedora 9 and it has *no* issues at all,
I've gone through boot up and shut down numerous times with no
difference between tries.  This does sound like a motherboard inconsistency.

When you say it won't boot do you mean it gets past grub and hangs? or
does it not even get to grub?
