Cant install CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1611 on newly purchased XL420 Gen 10

I have the first two HDD 300G configured as logical drive RAID1, but installing OS on it doesnt seems to work for me. I chatted HP support and the agent said something about no support for CentOS. But we had previous 420 gen 9 where we have ceph /CentOS working fine- However the OS were installed on logical drive on the back bay of the server.

Hi,

What you were informed on chat is right, HPE is unable to certify CentOS on any of the servers as there is no official certification test suite for CentOS. Utilities and tools that work on other versions of Linux are similar but not guaranteed to function the same on CentOS

"installing OS on it doesnt seems to work for me" - Could you please explain in detail about the issue that you are facing. (Add Screenshots if available.)

Thank you

.

After installing OS. I get a prompt that its succesfully installed and begins a reboot process. But end up passing booting from Hard drive and goes  trying pxe.

Booting from logical drive doesnt seems to work , after instaling CentOS

I just tried the option of testing before installationa and I notice, the logical drive - RAID1 doesnt show as part of the disk available.

Hi,

Thank you for the update.

S100i Software RAID only supports Windows. For Linux users, HPE offers a solution that uses
in-distro open-source software to create a two-disk RAID 1 boot volume. For more information visit: https://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/project/lsrrb/ You may have to follow the same, but again we wouldnt be able to gurantee the outcome.

NOTE: Customers using Linux and VMware can use the embedded SATA ports in AHCI mode. In
AHCI mode S100i Software RAID is not enabled.

Please refer the below link to get more info about the S100i controller :

Thank you.

Hi,

Thank you.

Is it possible to try to install a different OS and check.

This is to confirm and rule out the OS / version issues.

Thank you
