linux rescue does not detect scsi drives
Posted on 2004-11-12
I am running redhat 7.3, dual xeon, supermicro X5DPL, two cheetah ultra320, adaptec scsi adapter. I am trying to setup a software-raid by first running linux rescue. However when I run linux rescue it doesnt detect the scsi adapter. It goes through and says no hard drives were detected. However if I boot the cpu without the rescue CD, it boots just fine and detects the adapter and both drives. I also ran tomsrbt which is linux on a floppy, it searched for scsi but returned 0 hosts. I am beginning to think this is a bios thing or I need to load more firmware for the motherboard. Has any one else had this issue ? Are there any boot options to define the adapter ?
