Installing RHEL Enterprise 5.3 on 2 80 GB SSD RAID 0
Ok.... I am trying to install RHEL 5.3 on our system. I am having some issues with the installation.
I think the problem stems from the hard drives I am trying to install to.
We have 2 80 GB SSD drives in RAID 0. These are mounted in a StarTech Hot Swap SATA Mobile Rack Backplane (HSB220SAT25B) This is where I want RHEL to go.
We also have 2 1.5 GB drives for data storage, but I don't want to put the OS on these unless I have to.
I enter the RAID setup and deleted the RAID and recreated it.
I am installing from a DVD and I have to switch the boot order to DVD driver first to be able to do so.
After I install, and reset the boot order, I am seeing messages about no disk being found. If I don't reset the boot order, of course I get the message the cd boot ready not ready, or something to that effect.
What is the proper procedure for this type of installation? Can I install to and boot from a RAID 0 device?
The system has a Asus P6T6 WS Revolution mobo which supports SATA RAID 0, 1, 10 and 5. When we put the system together we did burn in with Vista, and had a 30 day eval of RHEL running on the 1.5 GB drives.
