I have an raid 5 array of 5 drives that currently has windows on it. I want to install CentOS on it instead. The problem I am having is when I boot from the CentOS cd and hit enter to install it brings me to a scrren that says "Unable to find any devices of the type for this instalation type. Would you liike to manually select your drive or use a driver disk? I did both first I tried to select a driver and selected HighPoint RocketRAID SATA Conroller from the list but it didn't ike that. I also tried select Use a driver disk and inserded a disk that had the driver downloaded off the HighPoint site. Both took me to the same error message.
Acording the the instruction for CentOS on the highpoint site I shold not get to this message at all.
Could it be because I have a windows install already on the disk. If so how do I get rid of it?
No, even if there are data on the disks, Linux MUST be able to see them.
Something that you can do is to load the kernel module manually (to let the RAID controller work with the Kernel).
