Install CentOS on RAID 1

Hello, I bought a HP Server (ML30 Gen10) and I’m facing some troubles to install a CentOS on RAID 1. I have already created the RAID with two SSD, but at the the CentOS installation, It doesn’t recognize the Raid storage. I already searched for storage drivers, but the only one I found It's for Windows Server. The smart array number is S100i SR.

Re: Install CentOS on RAID 1

Bad news,

this is from QuickSpec:
https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/getdocument.aspx?docname=a00019427enw

Operating Systems

Microsoft Windows Server
Microsoft Windows Hyper-V Server

NOTE:
S100i Software RAID only supports Windows.

For Linux users, HPE offers a solution that uses in-distro open-source software to create a two-disk RAID 1 boot volume. For more information visit: https://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/project/lsrrb/

NOTE:
Customers using Linux and VMware can use the embedded SATA ports in AHCI mode.
In AHCI mode S100i Software RAID is not enabled.

NOTE:
For more information on HPE's server operating systems and virtualization software, please visit: http://www.hpe.com/info/ossupport

But you can switch to AHCI mode in BIOS and use OS Software Raid.
