Installing RHEL 5 on DL180 G6. Hung when formatting disk.

Hello,

I am having issues when installing a RHEL 5 in a DL180 G6 server. When the installation is trying to format the disk, it just hung forever. It does not matter disk (I have changed it). I only have a SATA disk. I have changed the disk slot with no luck.

Any idea about the reason and possible solution?.

Thanks,
Iván.

Hello,

Changed disk. Same thing.
Changed DVD. Same thing.
Try to patch firmware. The update found no card, so I could not update it.

So, unless I change the controller -and it is on the board-, no way out.

Thanks.

What is the update version you are trying to install. try rhel 5 update 2.

As per the hardware compatibility matrix DL180 G6 is still not listed.

Hello,

Tried releases 2, 3 and 4. With different disks.

This starts to smell bad.....
