I've got boxes with root on crypto on lvm2 on md (raid1), and boot on lvm2 on md (raid1). Grub2 can deal with it without difficulty.

As for grub2 on a volume without a partition table - I'll have to try it out.

This is what I'm looking forward to the most: being able to use disks each with just one single partition to create a single MD raid device with LVM on top containing LVs for boot, swap and /.

That way I can assign another disk as a spare raid disk and have the loss of one whole disk replaced by another whole disk. Right now I can't do that as I have to partition both disks into two and create two raid devices: one for /boot and one for LVM. I can't assign spare disk to each of these as loss of a disk would try and map two spare disks to replace two partitions. Well, either that or it would fall flat on its face. It's so dumb I've not even tried it. GRUB2 solves this dilemma, so it can't arrive fast enough for me.

I find Grub 2 in ubuntu 9.10 64 bit to be a real pain. First of all there is no utility available that will allow one to edit and and it shows up with multiples of the same os if you have several hard drives but only some are actually connected to that os.

When I had to reinstall windows 7 the grub would then not load but gave a grub rescue message. None of the parameters to recover grub worked nor did any of the instructions I used from several "help forums". Ended up having to fix mbr in windows 7. I will never use grub 2 again unless a utility is developed to recover it and edit the entries.
