Sometimes, when hdd feeling bad, your OS can’t start normaly.
And you are getting grub concole, like: grub >
The easiest way to boot your kernel:
1. check the list of drives
grub> ls
(hd0) (hd0,gpt2) (hd0,gpt1)

2. Check /boot folder on the drive (or another folder, depends from your server structure)
grub> ls (hd0,gpt1)/boot/
. .. grub initrd-2.6.32-ovz-el-alt88.M60P.1.img System.map-2.6.32-ovz-el-alt88.M60P.1 vmlinuz-2.6.32-ovz-el-alt88.M60P.1

3. Booting
grub> set root=(hd0,gpt1)
grub> linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-ovz-el-alt88.M60P.1 root=/dev/sda1
grub> initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.32-ovz-el-alt88.M60P.1.img
grub> boot

Another way is more complicated. And you should use it, if you got an error “grub unknown command linux”

While installing some package via yum, you can receive the error “Package mysql.noarch.rpm is not signed”.
It means you are using not official repositary.
To solve this problem, just add --nogpgcheck
yum install mysql --nogpgcheck

Sometimes its a big problem to install OS on hdd’s after hardware raid. Because hdd contains RAID metadata and OS can’t be installed.

To remove RAID metadata, do following:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=20 – removing first 20 sectors of the drive

then check number of sectors via command fdisk -s /dev/sda

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda seek=(number_of_sectors – 20) bs=1k – removing last 20 sectors of the drive


dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda seek=$(( $(fdisk -s /dev/sda) -20)) bs=1k

Do this on all drives with RAID metadata
