Can't get Linux 6.2 to run on DL360

After the install I am re booting and all that comes up is 000000 across the entire screen. Is it a video issue or my array controller or ????? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Can't get Linux 6.2 to run on DL360

The required drivers should be in (RedHat I assume) Linux 6.2.
I installed RH 6.2 on DL 360 without any problems.

If my I am wrong about the the drivers, you can get them here:

There are easy to to work with.

Do you boot into Graphics or text mode?

Sometimes when things just don't work, a reinstall is the quickest path, rather than wanting to understand everything (?)

Good luck.
