Can`t install CentOS7
« on: September 11, 2017, 03:26:10 PM »
Hi people,
I have one old rig HP ProLiant DL380 G5 with 2xQuad Core Xeon @ 3.00GHz, HP Smart Array P400, 32GB DDR2 ECC RAM, 2x73GB SAS 15k RPM + 6x500GB SATA III, 2xGigabit LAN + 2x1000W PSU. Today I tried to install CentOS 7 on it and guess what - it didn`t see my hard drives. None of them. I was reading on centos.org that they support P400 iscsi drivers, but not on the installer. I switched off the RAID Controler - the same, still no HDDs. How I`m supposed to install CentOS 7 when it doesn`t see my hard drives? and later to install the drivers for them? WTF? More strange thing is that on CentOS6 Minimal install it see all my hard drives with RAID 1+0 on. For me it`s strange that old version of RHEL based Linux supports SCSI/SAS/SATA and the new version doesn`t. If anybody have an idea how to install CentOS7 on SAS/SATA HDD please tell me.

you will probably need to load that drivers as this servers are old now...I had the same issue with that server long time ago.

Everything went ok on the installation. Than I fixed the grub config. When it was booting on the 3 color lines the last one(white one) get to the end and get stucked for more than an 35minutes. I will try again soon, but for the moment I stick on CentOS 6. :D
