CentOS 6.2 Dell PER310 (solved)

Hello, Hebraist!

Faced with the problem of the installer (CentOS-6.2-x86_64-minimal.iso) does not see the hard drives.
I read that you need a advanced driver to which you want to recompile the kernel.

There are variants easier? Or is it the gasket?
With respect!

You have a driver? If Yes, then do as the installation tsentos 6x for adaptec 6805 for example.
ie loaded from disk before the advent of the GUI, then press ctrl+alt+F2 at the console to do the insmod madriver.ko, then ctrl+alt+F6 back to the graphical installer.
In General, a rough manual as here:
blog.ranzhe.ru/2011/12/centos-6-adaptec-asr-6405e.html
But by the way, Yes. Choteau I remembered something similar I had to do with Debian. There network the driver had to collect and add to the initrd.

So I support the way the most labor. - Amara_Rutherford20 commented on October 8th 19 at 01:45
The only thing is each time you update the kernel again to copy the driver and rebuild the initramfs.
But it also can be solved. - elinore.Medhurst commented on October 8th 19 at 01:48

put the Ubuntu. it really is easier for you. Centos is not quite designed for installation on the fresh laptops.
Funny you terminology. PER310 is a server unit, but let it be called a laptop. - Amara_Rutherford20 commented on October 8th 19 at 01:47

Options:
1. connect the screw on USB and put it on a CentOS. Then chroot to perekodirovat kernel with the necessary driver to connect the screw through sata. Perhaps in the end you will need to edit fstab.
2. To use desktop distributions. In this case, the middle is Fedora.
Well, the stuff I said. I thought the conversation on the laptop. RedHat did not try to put? - Amara_Rutherford20 commented on October 8th 19 at 01:49
Also in the official documentation says that the supported RHEL 5 and not 6. I would have tried. - elinore.Medhurst commented on October 8th 19 at 01:52
Tsentos is compiled from the RHEL repository. - forrest.Volkman commented on October 8th 19 at 01:55
As I understand it, there is an emphasis on version. Like try 5, not 6. - Nick_Pouros82 commented on October 8th 19 at 01:58
if the controller h200, then it is a lsi sas2008 driver you can try to find under the 6th rhel. - Nick_Pouros82 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:01
Here for example is for rhel 6

Kernel version, as I understand it, 2.6.32, and the server SAS disks. Support SAS in the kernel appeared, I think, only with 2.6.33. However, I could be wrong, not that I remember. So check it out.

CentOS picks up the new very slow, rarely updated. I'm afraid that the options on fingers:

1. To compilate hands
2. Wait for new version and hope MB after six months will be OK
3. To set Axis fresh kernel, but this is 99% likely to be testing.

And in what complexity to precompiled the kernel?
Don't need all this. You just need to add a driver. - Amara_Rutherford20 commented on October 8th 19 at 01:51

Thank you all, at least until the end and did not understand what I did. But inserting the Dell utility CD I have preinitialization hard drives, and pointed them to run the RAID. After that, the installation went normally.

Thank you all for participating!
