Description Caitlyn M. Martin 2004-12-21 22:51:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

Description of problem:
Installation of RHEL 3.0 on a Dell PowerEdge 2850 with an LSI
Megaraid2 RAID controller.  Installer offers LSI Megaraid2 as a driver
to be installed but then fails to find the driver.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL linux 
2. Fails to find hard drive -- select LSI Megaraid2 driver
3. Attempting to continue installing the OS will fail due to lack of a
hard drive to install on.

Actual Results:  System continued to fail to find controller.  After
ungzip'ing and uncpio'ing the driver it is possible to go to a command
prompt and insmod the driver.  At that point the installer recognized
the array and I was able to partition the storage.

Expected Results:  Installer should have loaded the megaraid2 driver
and recognized the array.
