IBM X3400 M3 wont boot to M1015 Raid Card but can see it
Posted on 2015-01-10
Got an urgent one.
I am trying to setup a IBM x3400 M3 with a M1015 ServeRaid Card in it with 4 3.5" Sata Drives, 2 x 1TB (Raid1) and 2 x 3TB (Raid 1).
I have made two Raid 1 Via the Web GUI of M1015, have set one of the Virtual Drives to Primary Boot in M1015 Bios
Installed ESXi 5.5u1 IBM Cust on the 3TB Raid 1 Drives, and ESXi saw both Raid1's when installed.
Installation went fine finished and no drama but when i rebooted wont boot to to the install.
I have looked through Bios of Machine and boot order and cant see anything that references the Raid controller in the boot order or anything but it does see by the look of it the individual drives but not sure how to handle that as i need to boot from Raid set.
Looking and hoping for a quick fix
