Sorry, this is NOT URGENT for anyone here...we volunteer our time, so asking for/expecting 'urgent' help is fairly rude.

And if you've spent two days on this so far, why have you not contacted HP support for help? You don't say what kind of controller you have in the system, what kind of drive(s), or how they're configured, but since that system ships with a RAID controller, have you tried to build the raid array yet??? Unless you build an array, your disks won't be visible.

After using CentOS for years now, you should know how to perform installations.

First off do not install CentOS 6.2 !!!
It is unsupported !

use the current CentOS 6.4

there are NO updates for 6.2 and there are NO software repos for 6.2
they were move the the archive over a year ago


is the drive 100% NTFS ?
if so cent will error saying that there is no place to install cent

use the install dvd for CentOS 6.4 and format the /boot partition to ext3 and / to ext4

then install cent 6.4

Completly agreed and appreciate that you find sometime to write on this, this server has 1 TB HDD, contacted HPn support as well but thsy said they will charge for OS installation.

...and you STILL don't say what kind of controller it's attached to, or if you created the array, or what you've done/tried so far.

Yes, they will...what they will NOT charge for is telling you why your OS installer doesn't see the attached hard drive, which is the question you should ask.

According to the datasheet you should have a HP Embedded Smart Array B110i SATA RAID Controller (RAID 0/1/10).

When your server boots up you can choose F8 to check or alter your RAID setup (watch out for SmartArray controller screen messages). What's set up here? Post your settings.

Try to start your server using a Linux LiveCD. Once booted look for devices called "cciss" in dmesg and /dev. These should represent your drives.

Once you are able to see and access your drive from a LiveCD, installing any OS should be a matter of a few moments.
