Hi,

Im trying to install Centos 6.4 on a Dell Powerdge 2900 and when installing it, it states it can't find any useable disks?

Do i need to disable Raid or something and let Centos configure the drives?

You need to setup the raid in the boot screen, it's that horrible menu system on Dells, dont try and do it using DRAC because it's a pain, best to sit in front of the server if you can.

You have to build the RAID ahead of time.  Just do it from the BIOS, it is rather painless.

If that has been done, then the only other thing it can be is if your particular LINUX distribution does NOT have the PERC drivers built into the boot image.  Building drivers into a LINUX kernel is painful, but doable.
