View Full Version : Can't Boot With Firewire Raid 1 - Hangs on FSCK

24th March 2006, 08:40 AM
Hi All,

I just installed a new system with Fedora Core 5. I added a pair of external firewire drives and built a software RAID 1 mirror using mdadm. I was able to format, mount, and use the mirror fine until I rebooted. The system boot hangs up because it fails fsck on the firewire mirror.

I assume it is failing because the external drives are not activated early enough in the boot process.

Anybody have a fix?
