This is a Dell 2650 with 2 SCSI drives (each 136 gb).. I have set it up as one container (one volume, no raid) so that the os should see it as 272 gb (which it does).. I am able to install centos 5.3 from the install cds (I chose server gui) but on reboot after installation is complete, it hangs.. It does seem to load grub.. but then I see 2 error message.. one seems to indicate something is wrong with a memory address and in the second it times out waiting to hear from the scsi adapter (waits for 22 s in an infinite loop).
would like to hear about possible ways to fix this; I read on another thread that one is supposed to give some startup parameters during install to let the OS talk to the adaptec controller correctly.
I did try initially to set it up as raid 1 using the Ctrl-A but it appears that the scrub process percentage indicator didnt seem to change (or maybe I just didnt wait long enough)
