No server for you today

Well, just as I got to install a new server, checked that everything in place, that old HDs are in safe place, I inserted the new ones, created RAID 1 (for redundancy) and booted LiveCD 2006.0

To my surprise, I saw 2 HDs instead of 1. That's weird I thought, rebooted and got into RAID controller again. Then, it figures, I had to initialize volume.

But this takes ages!!! I use SuperMicro server with 2.26Ghz Pentium 4, and it uses some MegaRAID controller which is soooo slow to configure.

So, I just hope that I can start install somewhen tomorrow, though according my calculations it should take this thing like 100 hours in total to finish.

In short, this sucks.

I think I remember that, once it began initialization, you can work on the system while it constructs it...

Well, not in this case. I'm still in BIOS, so no work from here.
