Installing an OS on a SCSI Drive

Hi

I have a Compaq Proliant 1600R and I need to if the server supports installing an OS on one of the SCSI drives because you cant install an OS an a RAID drive.

Any help would be great!!
Thanks

Re: Installing an OS on a SCSI Drive

Hi,

Can you please try to explain again what you want to do and why. What hardware do you have? Is there a raid controller? How many disks? What OS?
You say you can't install an OS on a raidset, why is that?

Re: Installing an OS on a SCSI Drive

You can install the OS on a SCSI disk - I'm not sure what OS you are going to install so I can't tell you how to do it but it can be done.

If there is an array controller in the server you will have to change the boot controller order to make it boot from the SCSI disk.

The problem with going on a single SCSI disk for the OS is you have no fault tolerance.
