Re: No disk detected during SLES 8.1 install

Hi Timothee,

Is it help for you.

First I tried to update the BIOS and Firmware and We are trying to load Red Hat
Enterprise server3.0 on a DL380 G4 with a smart array 6i controller, during the power on
Self test the system recognizes the 6i controller and created logical drive RAID1 (36GBX2NO'S).

The Red Hat Installation is not recognized the disk drivers and therefore it says
No place to install the operating system. The installation program is not finding the
Logical drive. During the installation we see the 'CCISS' driver attempt to and apparently
Successfully load, this should enable Red Hat to see the logical drive, but it does not detect.

I down loaded a new driver (cpq-cciss-2.4.50-30.rhel3.i386.dd.gz) from
The hp support site and have tried to load that drive but still problem persist.
Finally I download Red Hat Update3 Image from following site
(http://mirror.lnnu.edu.cn/01.iso/02.as3-updates3)and start the installation
It is working fine, because the Customer previous OS-Kernel Ver: 2.4.21-4 but download
OS-Kernel ver: 2.4.21-20.So it is problem with kernel Compatibility issues.

Re: No disk detected during SLES 8.1 install

hello bryan and sivakumar

i agree with you sivakumar, i did exactly the same thing you described step by step except that my system is SuSE Enterprise Server 8.1 but the method is the same

using the SuSE SP3 cd (the equivalent of your RH SP Image) i upgraded the kernel, going 2-4-19 to 2-4.21 as a result of this operation, so that the new kernel has support for the last generation of controller

thanks all and have a nice day

cheers
