zooid Posted December 1, 2009 Share Posted December 1, 2009 Hi there, I've bought Dell XPS M1730, I know very little about linux, only basic commands, I've tried Slackware on my Desktop PC. And I always wanted to have a linux laptop. But after several times trying to install different versions of linux with no success. I've started googling that problem, then I've read articles saying that if hard drives are using RAID0, whatever that is (something like making 2 or more hard disks acting like one, as far as I understand), Linux cannot detect my drive(s) therefore, cannot install bootmanager, therefore cannot install linux. What I am asking is, do I have to disable RAID0, split my hard drives, lose all the data to have linux installed on that laptop. Isn't there any way to prevent myself from spending hours and hours of backing up data? Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
