Hi...

Welcome to the forum

In Linux, many of the drivers needed are already included in the operating system and there is generally no need to install them manually. Exceptions are usually the graphics and wireless drivers.

If you using Red Hat installed on a VM, then this does not apply. You use the setup that is provided by the VM. There is usually no altering it, if you want it to work.

Regards...

I need to know how can I Inject my HBA Drivers During the Installation.

Please Guide me through this.

Smile System Information and Problem Statement

I want to Inject the HBA Controller Drivers while Installing the RHEL_7 OS via the iDRAC [through the Virtual Media Installation] Virtual Console.

I'm unable to Boot to OS after Installing the RHEL_7 OS on to my Server R730xD. In order to make sure the System detects my Expander(Backplane) I need to Provide the Drivers for it. I cannot provide the Drivers Post-OS as the OS Does not boot in BIOS Mode.

I need to know the Commands and Solution for it.

Priority : Injecting the Drivers for testing the New Controller HBA.

I have the Drivers Ready in " dd.iso " file for the HBA Controller.
