Ubuntu won’t boot raided root

Posted by Trenton

Well, I've had a lot of trouble switching my system from LVM, to RAID1+LVM on ubuntu 10.04.  I got another drive for my system, created a mirror with one drive (temporarily of course) asked lvm to move my entire system over to that physical device, added the previous drive to the raid array, and rebooted (oops).  I am listing a few things that are important to know when you're both new to Ubuntu, and doing raid post installation of Ubuntu.
