Intel C236 Chipset driver

Postby damyantd » 2018/03/23 10:06:06

Hello all,

I have a brand new Fijitsu PRIMERGY server with Intel C236 Chipset and hardware RAID. Unfortunately CentOS 7 does not find the RAID controler and can not be installed. Can any one help me?

Are you sure it's hardware RAID? Post the output from lspci -nn | grep -i raid so we can see what sort of controller it is.

Yeah, that's FakeRAID not hardware. The best solution is to disable the RAID functionality in the BIOS and set the controller to AHCI mode. If you need RAID on top of that then use Linux software RAID (mdadm).
