Install Debian on a 10 tb hdd

Postby Figge71 » 2018-04-19 09:12

For a week I’ve been searching for a way to install Debian in a 10 tb hdd.
If I install Debian on a smaller disk, 3tb, the installation program find the disk, and when I run fdisk Linux.
I’ve also tried the Experience install, but I might have done something wrong!?

Does it mater that I’ve installed the disks as an raid 2x10tb, as a backup installation?

I’m going to run zoneminder on the machine...

Pl as help mee, I’ve tried find a solution for almost tow weeks

Did you use GPT partition table? MS-DOS partition table only supports up to 2TB.

Quite possibly. How is that raid implemented? BIOS? RAID card? What kind?

It’s implemented via Bios.
It’s an Asus motherboard

You probably need to read this then, if you haven't already. FakeRAID needs an additional driver.
Alternatively, get rid of it and set up MDRAID from the installer.

Debian doesn’t seam to recognize a disk in that size.
I’m using Debian wissard when installing and it can’t find the disk.

When trying the experian installation, I can’t find the installation that is recommended in another forum.

Does MDRAID slow down the system?

It looks like you hit the head on the nail :)
I’ll read that and get back with a result!

It's software RAID using the CPU, but BIOS RAID is done on the CPU as well, so it should perform about the same. All the benchmarks I have seen tend to concur, real hardware RAID cards (with their own CPU and RAM) get a slight performance edge, but both hardware and BIOS solutions loose on flexibility when compared to software mdraid.

At risk of muddying the waters further, I don't really use traditional RAID any more... ZFS is the ducks nuts.

According to this there is no advantage using hardware RAID with less than 10 disks.
