I am going to install Centos8 on a Dell R220.
I have RHEL 7 and the license expired so admin gave me permission to install Centos8
- 2tb SATA drive
- Perc controller.
- Drive has an Redhat RHEL 7 on it.

When I use the CentOS-8.1.1911-x86_64-boot.iso the SATA hard drive is not detected.

I have selected AHCI in the BIOS with a Virtual Drive.

Thank you.

You may want to check to see if your controller is supported in CentOS/RHEL 8. See this ELRepo's blog for more into.

Thank you I have a PERC H310 Adapter RAID Control ler,
Someone was able to use elrepo with a DELL R610 with PERC H310

"(1) Installation of the OS requires a driver for your hardware. We offer driver update disks (DUD). You can download them from here or the corresponding directory of our mirror sites. Each DUD image contains a driver in the form of a kmod package. The installer is supposed to find the driver. If this does not happen, you need to append the inst.dd option to the boot command line. For details please see Performing an assisted driver update. Also, a tutorial video that demonstrates how to use ELRepo's DUD is available."

I need to lean how to install the drivers so the installation media will recognize the drive (HDD)
I've done this with Debain buyt not with Centos

Thanks again.
