Fedora Core3 or Ubuntu cannot find drive in HP Netserver LT6000r or Netserver LP2000r w/ LSI Raid Controller
Posted on 2006-06-28
I have three older HP Netserver LT 6000r's and an HP Netserver LP 2000r. Tried loading Core 3 after making sure the built-in HP LSI RAID controller (0,1 or 5 with RAID 5 the default) sees the drive. Fedora Core 3and Ubuntu will go through until it tries to load the installation files, which is where they both fail and abort.
I have heard the best way is to load Win NT/2000 or XP, which should recognize the drives easily and then use Grub to make a dual boot with a dummy (small storage, no full installation) NT/2000 or XP Prof. If this is the best way, is there a recommended procedure to do this? Or is there a set of Linux drivers that can be loaded for Fedora Cores 3,4,or 5 or even UBuntu Linux at install time?
