    Thanks for reply dear paul, We are using 490c with NC532i flex 10, furthermore I am trying to install through Virtual Media. Meanwhile I removed 2nd SATA SSD HDD and error has been removed.

    It may not recongnize the SSDs yet.  It knows SATA,SCSI, SAS.  Take a look at the logs, but looks like you found the isse.

    I think this is bug related to SATA  controller becoz when I insert back 2nd HDD the problem is not repeated.
