Install Linux on HP Microserver

I've been trying to install CentOS 5.6 and 6 or Ubuntu 11.04 on my brand new microserver but it fails. Installation goes through without a problem, but after a reboot the screen goes either blank (Ubuntu) or a basic underline prompt blinks in the upper left corner (centos).

 

The only hardware change i made is that i moved the 250GB builtin harddrive to the 5.25" slot. I've put in 4 x 3TB in the ordinary slots. But i even tried to remove the 3TB drives and run the install only with the 250GB disk.

 

 

Anyone have any ideas on what could be wrong? Anyone successfully installed this combination?

Re: Install Linux on HP Microserver

I've successfully installed the following on the MicroServer

 

Debian

CentOS

Fedora

OpenSuSE

RHEL

SLES

Ubuntu

 

There is not a Linux driver for the embedded SATA software RAID controller, don't enable the RAID function If you really need RAID you can install a P212 Smart Array controller.

 

If your installing to the 250GB drive you shouldn't have a problem booting. Trying to boot from a 3TB drive will probably not work, Google around for GPT partitions booting on BIOS based systems.
