comment Can you change the metadata version on an existing array?
odd that I didn't get a notification about this. no I didn't try. I just wiped it and recreated the array. I'm going to accept this answer with the short solution of it being NO or perhaps (ridiculously difficult)

so I confirmed that a long time ago. I'm running raid10,f2. obviously recreateing the array was what I was trying to avoid.

comment Getting Grub2 to recognize a Raid 10 boot/root
grub1 never left the development stage... some gnu projects seem to do that... anyways it was the fact that I wasn't using 0.90 for metadata. I set those on root/boot and now it works fine.

comment Is there anyway to build a raid system without all drives?
I been testing this drive with badblocks and smartctl for about a week. the other drive was definitely DOA it found badblocks in maybe an hour or so. besides I'm going to make sure my data is backed up. This old drive isn't going anywhere. I'll try these commands thanks.
