Post by lxdorney » 2007/11/01 15:25:18

I am trying to install Centos 4.4 from the server Supermicro X7DBE and 6 SATA drive with raid5 configuration,
I made Gui installation and I successfully load all packages to my server, when i click reboot then my server restarting.....
i can't go to initialazation, they can't load the grub boot loader and hang-up, I tried also Centos5 same situation happens.

When i Configure single hardrive thats no problem, the problem exist when i configure raid5.
i am using 3ware 9550SX raid contoller.

The 3ware 9550SX card is natively supported in Linux 2.6.18 (CentOS 5.x) IIRK.
General indications are the 3Ware has drivers for RHEL that work (as expected) for CeontOS:

Hi community friend of centos, I already test to installed the Centos5, to my server, in my first attempt installation,
I as I said to my first post message, when I installed same problem I encountered, any suggestions that can help me
about my problem, as of now I have lot of troubles to my boss if this problem cannot be solve please, Help me.

I'll go back same installation procedure to my server but I cannot think what problem is this.
I obtusely see that my hardware that's no problem just becoz when I use single drive configuration I successfully load packages and when i reboot that's everything is fine, the problem is when I use the raid5 configuration.

I Hope soon can fix this Issue

a million thanks in advance
