I am trying to install Centos 7 on a couple 4TB drives with software
raid. In the Supermicro bios I set UEFI/BIOS boot mode to legacy. I
am using the Centos 7 minimal install ISO flashed to a USB thumb
So I do custom drive layout something like this using sda and sdb.
Create /boot as 512 MB XFS raid1 array.
Create SWAP as 32 GB SWAP raid1 array.
Create / on 3.xxx TB XFS raid1 array.
I then get error.
"Your BIOS-based system needs a special partition to boot from a GPT
disk label. To countinue, please create a 1MiB 'biosboot' type
I cannot seem to create the biosboot partition so it is mirrored to
both drives for redundancy. Any ideas how to do this? I want
everything mirrored to both drives.
