Question P5BV-C/4L no valid devices were found on which to create new filesystems


It's been years since I've set up a Linux machine and I am getting a "no valid devices were found on which to create new filesystems" during a Centos install on a Asus P5BV-C/4L motherboard. I am assuming that there is a raid driver that needs to be installed, but when I went to the asus download site, selected linux/P5BV-C/4L and downloaded all of the available drivers, I keep getting errors saying "Driver disk is invalid for this release of Centos".

I take the zip file, extract it down to the .img file, burn it to disk and try to load it after running a "linux dd". Is this the correct way of doing it? Am I using the correct file?

Hi,

Try to change, on BIOS, the configuration of yours disks. Generally, there're options like "IDE", "ATA" or "RAID".

Then boot it with CentOS and check it out.
