Description twliao 2000-10-17 21:46:39 EDT
I am have a problem trying to install RedHat 7.0 into a external SCSI 
SyJet (it's the only drive on the system, there is no internal HD)

When I try to install it, after where u choose what kind of package u want 
to install (Server, Workstation, Custom, and Upgrade options) It shows a 
error message:

An error ocurred - no valid devices were found on which to create new 
filesystems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problems.

In the SyJet disc, I have RedHat 6.2 installed and even if I choose 
the "upgrade" option, it shows the same thing.  I doubt it's any hardware 
problem cause I try to reinstall RedHat 6.2 and everything went fine!

What kind of SCSI card is the SyJet on? You probably need to use the driver disk
which is included with 7.0.
Comment 2 twliao 2000-10-23 13:31:03 EDT
It's a Adaptec 2940UW SCSI Card. During the install, I did see RedHat 
installing AIC7XXX driver.

bootpc -> anaconda
Comment 4 twliao 2000-10-23 16:15:44 EDT

Comment 5 Brock Organ 2000-11-07 12:18:03 EST
could you try running the install in "text expert" mode ... is your SyJet
visible then ... ?

I ask since removable drives are not visible to anaconda in 7 except during
"text expert" mode ...
