Re: Red hat and BL860c

The hard drive where are you trying to install red hat are local or from a SAN

If are local disk you must first configure the disks as mirror using the smart setup cd.

If the disk are from a san after you have presented must put the messanine driver.

Go to qlocic website and download it .

Hi Isaac,

Can you check what is your Primary Console Output Device?

This option is in the Efi boot Menu... Console Boot Options.... "Console Devices"...

If your primary console is VGA and you try to install REdhat in serial device then change it.

Best Regards...
