• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

Trying a clean install of PopOS on a new Sager NP8378F2 model laptop.

Laptop specs:
2x raid-0 striped SSDs (Samsung Evo's)
Nvidia graphics (using the NVIDIA PopOS media)
Install via USB (image appears ok)

I've verified that UEFI is disabled in the Bios, Fastboot it appears is also disabled.

At bootup I notice an error on a line mentioning GRUB, but it moves fast so I don't see exactly what it said.

@davidparks21, unfortunately Intel software RAID is not supported on Linux Desktop or at least doesn't work Out-of-the-Box from what I understand.
Maybe this information would help?

You could disable the RAID0 in the BIOS/UEFI settings, then setup a /boot partition as MD RAID1 and then MD RAID0 for the / partition, although it is more complicated to install that way.

After lots of review of software raid I've come to understand that ubuntu won't boot to a raid0 partition. Therefore I've created (2) 500MB partitions on my two drives and configured my raid0 partion across the second partition on both drives, as seen in the installation window, bottom right.

So I think I need to set the boot partition to the first partition on the first drive, which seems easy to configure. But I then want to set the raid0 device `/dev/md0` as my root partition. But I can't select the software raid partition in the installer here.

What do I need to do to install PopOS in root on the md0 software raid device?

I was able to resolve the issue above. I needed to:

- Make the `/dev/md0` software raid device a GPT partition using `sudo parted` and `mklabel gpt`.
- Create a partition on `/dev/md0`. I used `fdisk` for this.

This guide was very helpful for those who come after me:

The AMP link is broken, so where is the normal link https://www.tecmint.com/create-raid0-in-linux/
