Re: SCSI Drive not recognise at boot install

Redhat 6.2 does not have the latest drivers or support for all devices for the ML330. See this web page for drivers required for older versions of Linux.

You first have to run the Compaq system configuration program and set the boot controller order. Make the the SCSI controller the booting hard drive is connected to, is first. Save the new hardware configuration to CMOS.

You then boot the system with the Redhat install CD. You must select the text based, custom install method during the install process. The Redhat default install will not work. See this web page for instructions on installing and using Linux on Compaq systems.

Instructions are provided for Redhat 6.2. If you upgrade to Redhat 7.0, the latest required drivers are included with the OS.
