Hi! i can't understand eveything. Prease give more info for us. More clear infos.
"RAID 0: Striped Set (2 disks minimum) without parity. Provides improved performance and additional storage but no fault tolerance from disk errors or disk failure."

-> I use RAID 0 when I'm MAD!

GRUB's officail manual

"21 : Selected disk does not exist
    This error is returned if the device part of a device- or full file name refers to a disk or BIOS device that is not present or not recognized by the BIOS in the system."

What I want is to install on 1 disk and choose in bios to boot this disk.
Now can I boot from bios my xp disk or my vista disk.
My xp disk is 2 x150 raid 0
My vista disk is 1x250
My empty disk is 1x250
I am new to Linux .

I dont know why my raid disk get error 21.

If I install on the emty disk my my raid disks mbr get currupt.
Can not start XP
Run fix mbr and xp is OK

I do not want dual boot.

Best regards KGP

The easiest method:

if you have more than a disk->you disable all disk you don't need ubuntu
(disconnect the data and power cables) :)

You "leave" in machine the only one empty disk for Ubuntu :-)

But a problem is: you must install a boot manager manually when you
plug back all data and power cables. ;-)
