Install ClearOS 5.2 onto HP Proliant DL120 G7
Posted on 2011-09-08
I am trying to install ClearOS 5.2 onto an HP Proliant DL120 G7 but when I get to the part of the install for setting up the drives I get a message that there are no physical drives.
I can't install an OS onto the server as the hard disk isn't recognised but I just don't see an option to select the appropriate drivers, which I believe to be the problem.
I understand that the DL120 isn't on the hardware list for ClearOS but have read that it can be installed. I did wonder about the later version - 6.1 - but this is only in Alpha release and so shouldn't be put into a live environment.
I have Used the SmartStart disk and run the diagnostics on the array controller, which it displays information about the disk and controller. In SmartStart, I go into the "Array Configuration and Diagnostics" and it displays information about the array B110i SATA RAID Cont.
I am not even bothered about RAID - I have only one disk in the server,
Please be aware that I am a Windows person and have no real Linux experience although am willing to get my hands dirty learning, but please aim the responses at the appropriate level - I am not a Linux expert.
I look forward to some guidance.
