    Dmb replied to a discussion, boot loader not installing

    I am having a similar problem. When I try to install ClearOS 7.4.0.204729 on my Microserver Gen8 (with BIOS dated 6/2014 or something as I have failed trying to update the BIOS) following the online guide it asks for a biosboot partition and when I try doing that in RAID 1 the system won't boot but when I accept the automatic configuration of just installing it on sda it will boot but only if the first HDD is working so I don't have redundancy. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks.

    new RAID 5 install error

    I am trying to install ClearOS 7.4.0.204729 on an HP Microserver Gen 8 with four 12TB Seagate HDD in a level 5 RAID. It worked earlier when I accidentally didn't use RAID 5 but instead used the default configuration for the root partition but now when I try RAID 5 I get an error message telling me that I need to use a biosboot partition even though I already set one up so I have to set it up again then it appears to work but when it goes to boot up I get the following mnessage:



    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    websites down

    Hi all,

    My websites are down and I can't figure out why. Everything was working with my old Internet connection last time I checked. The (new) Internet connection works fine; I can browse the web and even access the websites from the LAN but not externally. Externally it just appears like the web page is taking a long time to load but after a while it fails.Bandwidth is not the issue. I have tried yum upgrade and I have tried restarting the server and I have tried deleting the firewall rule allowing HTTP connections and setting it up again. I am using dyn,com for dynamic DNS so I thought that might be the problem but when I check the logs on dyn.com it says all is fine.

    Any ideas on how to solve this?

    Thanks.

    Sorry but which logs do I look in and how do I enable verbose logging?

    I don't know. How do I find out? If I do need it: how do I get it?

    I changed ddclient.conf to this:

    With username, password, e-mail address and websites changed for privacy.

    And it still doesn't work.

    Any ideas?
