RH9, ICH6R, P5AD2 Premium, SATA, RAID 0


Hi there,

I am trying to install RH9 on P5AD2 Prem. with ICH6R RAID0 enabled.
I have two WD identical Raptor drives configured in BIOS as RAID 0
both drives are recognized.

RH9 installation does not recognize them.

Do I need a driver for ICH6R controller?

Do I need to recompile RH9 kernel?

I have another 2.4.18 RH box that I can use for development.

How can I setup RH9 using ICH6R RAID drives?

Thanks,
Peter

Gee, redhat 9 not recognizing SATA drives... go figure... what a shocker that is!

Stop using a discontinued, unsupported, outdated distro, and get a real distro, which was written "after" the industry decided to start shipping SATA drives and you might stand a chance of having them recognized.

Thanks.

So which distribution is SATA friendly?
Which one would you recommend?

Thanks,
Peter

None of them are SATA friendly.. lol. But some are on distant speaking terms. Anything out there that remarks on having a 2.6 kernel should be fine.

I use Suse 9.1 upgraded to kernel 2.6.8 (latest mantel kernel-of-the-day) and it recognizes all my 8 SATA drives on my ASUS P5GD2 mobo, I have seven of them in sw raid 5+1 and it works like a charm !
