I've just installed Debian Wheezy on a Dell C-Series Server w/o any problems. However, at first reboot, I don't even get a GRUB menu. So I guess it's a problem with where GRUB was installed and maybe the RAID configuration.
The server has 6 HD's, 2 being system disks configured as RAID 1, 4 SSD's for data configured as RAID 0. The first two were recognized as
/dev/sdc, the additional four as
/dev/sdb and the USB boot stick from which I installed Debian as
During installation Debian was suggesting to install GRUB to the MBR of
/dev/sdc. The entries in
/etc/fstab use UUID's so the problem can't be non persistent device names over reboot. I've tried to manually re-install GRUB using
grub-install /dev/sdc as well as
grub-install '(hd2)' which, according to
/boot/grub/device.map, is GRUB's way of saying
/dev/sdc. Both returned No error occurred.
However, I still can't reboot the server. I'm feel like I'm making a stupid rookie mistake. Any advice?
For the sake of completeness I'M using Debian Wheezy 7.4.
