I am following and I am using software RAID 0. I am using Ubuntu 10.10 LiveCD and is trying to restore grub2 after installing Windows 7 in another partition.

Here is the console's outputs:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l

Unable to seek on /dev/sad

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dmraid -r /dev/sdb: nvidia, "nvidia_acajefec", stripe, ok, 488397166 sectors, data@ 0 /dev/sda: nvidia, "nvidia_acajefec", stripe, ok, 488397166 sectors, data@ 0

So do you have an idea for how to make fdisk see my RAID array? How to make fdisk detect the Software RAID like dmraid?

fdisk doesn't see RAID containers, fdisk sees partitions. Perhaps you meant to use fdisk on one of the device mapper devices instead.

Is that so? I don't know the ways around in Linux at all, so how can I tell fdisk to do what you've said instead? – Karl Dec 26 '10 at 6:00
Point it to one of the /dev/dm-* device nodes instead. Or maybe /dev/md*. I don't do much work with software RAID. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 26 '10 at 7:05
I don't understand. There is no such function in fdisk. – Karl Dec 26 '10 at 12:05
