Dual-booting <- Installing Cents Os Server 7.0


Chris Murphy wrote:

In that case, wouldn't it be more precise to say: CentOS-7 doesn't support dual boot if you are using LVM? It seems to me to work reasonably well with ext4. Does it work with LVM if you have a separate ext4 /boot partition?

An Mdadm Question


CentOS 7.

I have a server with four drives. 1 is /, and the other three are in RAID5. I need to pull a drive, so I can test whether the server can read > 2TB drives. I've been googling, but don't want to screw the server up....

I think I'd like to 1. stop the RAID 2. pull a drive 3. put in a large drive, and run parted, and mkfs 4. pull the large drive 5. replace the RAID drive 6. fire up the RAID.

So, can I do it in that order? Do I need to fail something?
