HP Proliant ML150 G2 raid installation

Hello,

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 8.04.2 on a proliant ml150 G2 server whith two sata HDD configured in raid1. I managed to configure the raid 1 and when the server starts, the logical disk array is detected. But during the installation, when I have to partition the disk, instead of showing me the logical array, it shows me the two sata drives, so the raid controler is not seen and I can't use raid in order to secure my installation.
Any idea to fix this?

Thanks by advance

The RAID function of the embedded SATA RAID controller in that server is software not hardware RAID and is controlled by a driver. The driver is closed source and there is not a driver available for Debian or a Debian based derivative.

Your options are to switch to a Linux distribution that HP offers the driver for, or use the mirroring capabilities built into Linux.
