PXE KickStart for SmartArray B120i,B320i

Hi Folks, I know that we can deploy CentOS 7.x using HPVSA and with linux dd , and then modprobe.blacklist=ahci inst.dd
follow this instruction:
http://serverfault.com/questions/680543/how-do-i-load-hpvsa-ko-raid-controller-b120i-module-in-centos-7-1

But I dont want to do it manually each servers, because I have many servers with this RAID model.
Does anyone know how to load driver hpvsa in KickStart?

Thanks in advance,

Are you using PXE boot to kick everything off?

Here is an entry for a 6.7 installation, 6.5 would be a similar syntax.  I do see in your config 'noipv6' and 'dd' don't have a space between them, but I'm assuming that is just a linewrap issue when you pasted the line into the forum.

 

label=rhel6.7hpdsa
    kernel RHEL6.7/vmlinuz
    append=ksdevice=eth1 initrd=RHEL6.7/initrd.img blacklist=ahci dd=http://192.168.1.1/repo/hpdsa/rh6.7/hpdsa.dd  repo=http://192.168.1.1/repo/RHEL6.7/disc1 ks=http://192.168.1.1/repo/answers/rhel6.x-cert.ks

Do I need to...

- Change RBSU for SATA Option for AHCI or Legacy Support ?

- Do I need this optioin instead? modprobe.blacklist=ahci inst.dd
