Install SLES 9 SP4 on Proliant DL160 G5 with Raid

Hello,
I try to install SLES 9 SP4 on a Proliant DL160 G5 and got the folling problem:
I build a RAID1 Array and a simple device with the Raid Setup (F8) for the 3 disks. I booted the SP4 SLES CD and selected F6 to load the aarahci driver for the raid controler. But in yast2 partition tool I only saw the individual devices like sda, sdb and sdc. But I could not see the Raid Array. What did I wrong?

thanks
michael

On the kernel boot line add the following

"broken_modules=ahci"

This will force the kernel to unload ahci and use aarahci. With ahci loaded the drives will appear as single devices.

I haven't tried this with SLES9, but I know it works with SLES10

Hello Jimmy,

many thanks for your help. The kernel option works fine in SLES9 too.

regards
Michael
