My project took me from using Fedora 23 to being unable to boot
my PC to reinstalling the operating system to finally using
Ubuntu 14.04 like a lifeboat.
I was working on converting an old RAID 0 set up to a more
robust RAID 5. RAID 5 will give me a chance to swap a replacement
hard drive for a failing one without, I had hoped, losing uptime
and data. After booting on a live cd to prepare the devices and
create the RAID, I tried to boot Fedora. No go. It kept shoving me
to "rescue mode". Uh-oh. I checked the RAID and it's clean and
active. There's nothing wrong with the RAID or the conversion .
I checked the configuration files for mdadm and fstab. I don't
see anything odd. This is when I spent a lot of time googling. None
of the fixes I read worked.
