Sil3112 support

Post by pma61 » 2014/07/20 08:46:18

Hi!
Yesterday I tried to install the new OS with netinstall ISO on my server (Intel D2550, motherboard: ASRock AD2550B-ITX with 1.40 firmware, 4GB of RAM) with Anaconda CLI :lol:

Now, when the system boots up, he doesn't recognise one HDD connected to a PCI card (Sil3112 chip, 2 port sata *hardware raid*). But when I disconnect and replug the sata cable, the block drive appears in /dev/sd*
I don't care about *hardware raid*, I need that the system can access the disk at boot time, like Centos 6.5.
I think it's a problem of 3.10.X kernel, it's true?

Thanks

The Sil3112 controller is NOT a hardware controller, it's at best FakeRAID. If it has a "RAID" BIOS then you may be able to turn that off or you may need to flash it with the non-RAID version of the BIOS - it's been a long time since I used one of those so cannot remember the state of play with them. It's quite old...

CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

I know it isn't a real hardware raid, so I wrote it between * *.
I already used this configuration with centos 6 and it was working out of box, but this time with centos 7 I had this problem.
Now this problem disappeared after full configuration of my server (I have installed many packages, maybe some dependencies)
SOLVED

Usually people use *this* to emphasise that something is true some a *hardware* RAID controller would mean that you were sure that it was one.
