Red Hat Enterprise Linux
I am trying to install a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 3 update 3 on an Intel Itanium2 server, but during the installation process the system restarts before disk partitioning. It displays a message that says:
"An error has occured - no valid devices were found on which to create new filesystems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem"
I suspect there is something wrong related to disks controllers, drivers.
I tried to do CTRL+ALT+F2 to promt a shell, then I do:
I get /dev/sda device with the correct size (36 GB) of the disk.
in /dev/sda1 I have an EFI partition (300 MB)
When I try to use parted for making a new partition on /dev/sda It fails with this message:
Error: Device /dev/sda has dodgey geometry
The same occurs with Red Hat Advanced Server 3 update 1.
Can anybody help me?
How can I guess which is the driver or controller that I need?
What is wrong and causes the installation process abort?
Thank you very much.
