I have tried to install FreeBSD 4.9, 5.1, 5.2.1 onto a IBM x345 while FreeBSD cannot recognize any disc and reported "No disks found".
I have read several post regarding the installation issue with serveRaid and know that there are problem with the vendor ID and device ID with adaptec and so FreeBSD cannot correctly recognize the serveRaid 6i.
Post below contains instruction on how to install the FreeBSD on serveRAID 6M with internal and external Disc.
Post below about exp for FreeBSD 2-BETA with servRAID 4MX
Post about the vendor and device ID fix
I have posted on other forums
But I have the following question
1. I don't have 6M card so I can't get a helper disk like what the author did
2. Is the Device ID of 6M is that same as 6i and what is the Device ID of 6i if they are different ?
3. I saw from post above seeems like vendor ID and device ID have been fixed on 19 March, 2003. How can I get the latest installation media with that build ?
4. I have another machine installed FreeBSD, I have tried to make a release over this machine. When I download the cvs using tag=. and the release can't even boot up.
When I downlod the cvs using tag=RELENG_5_2_1_RELEASE and want to just update the ips related files to the latest version, I can't even finish the make release. What I done wrong ?
Any help is much appreciated.
