Can't detect single drive on SAS6 with Dell R410

Post by Bashed » 2016/07/19 14:05:21

Trying to install centos 6.8 off USB. Have one drive installed and SAS controller enabled but Centos is only picking up USB drive not the 1TB SATA. During boot it shows up though. How do I work around this?

I can't do much in SAS controller config panel. I can't initiate drive since it's one drive. There's no option to bypass raid except disable sas controller, then drive doesn't even show up during boot at that point.

You'll need to create an array in the RAID controller BIOS before the disk is visible to the o/s. That might mean you need to configure it as a RAID 0 array containing one disk...

I tried that, but it wouldn't let me initiate a new array. It gave the option of RAID 0 or 1 and both descriptions stated "Disks 2-4". Create array option is "Ctrl + C" or just "C" if I remember, nothing happened when I pressed that.
