Fedora Installation :: 10 - Get To Select The Intel RAID Driver In The Install Process?

Jan 12, 2009

Installing new Intel server S5000VSA (Sapello) motherboard with RAID 1. Downloaded F10 32 bit DVD and run install. Everything works fine and select Samba and all that. Install completes but on reboot get a blank screen.

I know with Windows one has to load the RAID driver off the Intel driver CD, so guess that is the problem. But how do I do this in Fedora? Question: How do I get to select the Intel RAID driver in the install process? There does not seem to be any place to stop and make this selection. I tried selecting the Red Hat and Suze installs on the Intel configuration assistant but it then reboots and that is it. In Windows it would ask to insert the Intel driver CD but that does not happen. So I am stuck. I loaded Fedora some 3 year ago and like it but then it was not on a RAID setup. I created a VMWare install on my desktop and did the same install options and it works. So the DVD seems fine.

Fedora Installation :: Raid On Dell R210 - Install Driver - Sees 2 Separate Drives?

Jun 4, 2011

Fedora is having trouble identifying a raid partition, it sees them as separate drives. I got drivers from dell, but during a Fedora dvd install, it mentions nothing about a place to install extra drivers.

When it says it must "initialize" the drives, Fedora then breaks the dell bios raid. How to either install the dell drivers or make Fedora see the raid partition as one?

Fedora Installation :: Intel ICH RAID In BIOS - Use Or Not?

Jan 5, 2010

As I understand, Fedora 12 sets up Intel ICH (when set in BIOS) as mdraid instead of dmraid.I would like to setup my 2 SATA hard drives so ultimately my /boot partition is RAID1, my / (ROOT) partition is RAID 1, and my swap is either RAID0, or fstab referencing 2 partitions on 2 of the drives, both set with pri=0 (which supposedly is equivalent to striping of RAID0, performance wise).

Assuming Fedora 12 uses mdraid for my configuration in either instance, am I better of enabling, or disabling the RAID mode in the BIOS? This system is strictly Fedora--no dual booting, no Windows. Any performance gains; reliability benefits between either scenario?It's a Intel P35 motherboard with ICH9R. Storage configuration is either "AHCI" or "RAID"

I ran into some strange issues with dropping drives with the RAID set on in BIOS. When it was set, that gave me two md devices of md126 (RAID0, swap) and 127 (RAID1 split between / and /boot). I think I had md126p1 for the SWAP, and md127p1 for /boot and md127p2 for / Within purely software, i have:

/dev/sda1 RAID
/dev/sda2 swap
/dev/sda3 RAID


I suppose unless the BIOS enabled RAID is supposed to be faster, I'll stick with a purely software route and keep the BIOS set to AHCI.

Ubuntu Installation :: Rebuild Status Raid 1 Intel Isw Fakeraid Intel?

Oct 1, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts server on my Intel "fakeraid" (software raid) (2x250 sata).To test my RAID 1 I turned off one HD and start the system.The first screen (Intel software screen) show Status = Degraded, but the system starts normally with just one HD.Then I turned off the system and turned on the HD again, so the first screen (Intel software screen) shows Status = Rebuild. If I enter in the software raid panel the folowing message is showed: "Volumes with "Rebuild" status will be rebuilt within the operating system"The system starts normally... but this message status stays permanently even I restart the system again

Fedora Installation :: Select Device Driver To Load ?

Apr 10, 2009

I downloaded the full install of Fedora 10. I burned the DVD and it booted okay. Going through the startup stuff, select language, keyboard, ect and then I choose the dvd as the source of the image. Then I get "no driver found" and gives me the option to choose from a list of drivers or to use a driver disk. I saw something in the forums about someone having the same problem but theirs was a video card issue. On the list of drivers it looks like they are network card drivers. I have no idea what to do. I am using a NVIDIA Geforce FX 5500 if that helps. I also did not verify the iso, though wouldn't it not boot at all if the iso image was broken?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 10.1 Driver For LSI RAID On Intel S3000AH

Feb 13, 2010

Short story: Correct driver for 10.1 for the raid on the Intel S3000AH board?
Long story: This system crashed due (I think) to a bad memory module, had been running fine for 2 years, had been an upgrade from Suse9. The hardware is fixed but I get "GRUB" repeating on the screen when booting and that is all. I can't seem to find opensuse drivers for 10.1 (that is what I believe is on the system, I believe the data is still intact and don't want to compromise it if possible) It will not load the 10.1 drivers from the intel site, presumably (?) because they are for SLES, not opensuse. I can boot from a 9.3 CD with the drivers from the intel site, and can see the original partitions.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 On RAID 0 Installation - Process Stop At 1% On Operating With HDD

Feb 27, 2010

I'll have a Sony VAIO AR290 with 2 HDD, earlier I'll have a Windows XP and SUSE and RAID was turned off. Now I turn on RAID in STRIPE mode for better productivity, Windows 7 installation was successful, It creates MBR partition (100 M and C: HDD. During SUSE installation(I've chose all parameters- swap and partition) installation process stop at 1% on "operating with HDD" and my VAIO dont answer on any key pressed (alt ctr del, ctr c, esc) and I'll should to turn it power off. During surfing web, I'll find some solutions to solve it by creating root partition but It hasn't any results.

Ubuntu Installation :: X201 Black Screen On Bootup With 10.04 RC (can't Get Intel Xorg Driver To Install)

Apr 27, 2010

Pretty much what the title says.. a few more details:

- I installed 10.04 using the alternative install so I've been doing all this in safe mode
- I installed a newer kernel (2.6.33) and still black screen
- I tried to install an updated Intel xorg driver, but I kept getting dependency errors (xorg, x11, something else)

I read another thread on this forum from a user who is using the same platform (Intel HM55), and I got stuck at the last point (can't get Intel xorg driver to install).

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Intel S5000Vsa And RAID Driver With Centos 5.4?

Dec 31, 2009

I've a Centos 5.1 server on S5000vsa Intel board with 6 bay HD in raid 1 mode (2 HD), and working fine until I've decide to make a yum update. Today the Centos is 5.4 but seems necesssary to upgrade the megasr driver for the raid function (i.e. , is not possible to contact the raid firmware trought Web Console 2). I've download the last megasr driver from Intel and I follow the instruction to upgrade the driver with s.o. installed, but when I start the server and choose via grub the new img boot file, the display show :

megasr.ko invalid module format -1 and stop. The linux version is the same in the machine (uname -a) and from the driver (2.6.18-164.9.1.el5). Another question : in Intel instruction spoken about megasr.o , but on img file I found a megasr.ko . I think instructions referre to old linux 2.4

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Install On Machine With Intel Raid Controller

Jul 20, 2010

I cannot install 11.3 on a machine with an intel raid controller I have tried with raid 1 using the card and then setting the disks to individual raid 0 and letting suse raid them. With the card doing it the machines crashes as soon as it tries to boot the first time, with suse doing the raid I just get 'GRUB' on the screen It seems a lot of people are having similar problems, does any one have any pointers. 11.2 installs fine. I would try and do a bug report but every time I go to the page it's in Czech

Fedora Installation :: Select Packages For Minimal Install?

Apr 5, 2010

I'm new to Fedora (not linux) and I was wondering how I would go about doing a minimal install of fedora 12. I downloaded the live disc but it doesn't give me installation options (I'm new to minimal installs so I don't know that much). I also searched all over looking for a fedora minimal install iso, something similar to the ubuntu minimal install iso that is only 12mb.

Ubuntu Installation :: New 9.10 On A Machine With Intel Raid?

Jan 22, 2010

This question is going to flag me as being a bit green to Ubuntu, but I must confess that in 15+ years in I.T., I have never had such a hard time understanding the partitioning scheme. Here's where I'm at.

I installed from the 9.10 live CD and selected the option to use the entire disk. The system has an Intel raid controller built in to the motherboard and two 80GB hard drives in a mirrored configuration. The system has previously been used with both XP and FreeBSD and never had an issue with partitioning or, more importantly, getting the boot manager to work.

So the live CD partitioned my hard drives, installed all the software and mount points, and claims that everything is finished. When I reboot, no boot device is found. If I then boot again from the live CD and select the option to boot from the hard disk, it does and I am in fact typing this message from the system. However, nothing I can do will make the thing boot without the bloody CD.

I've spent hours trying to figure out how to make grub work, or how to fix the MBR but no luck. The drives don't show up as /dev/hda or as anything logical that I can discern, so I can't even construct a workable install-grub command. Doing a df gives me this:


which is not very informative, is it? FreeBSD was never such a pain to make boot.Frankly, I'm not very impressed that a clean install (non dual boot) on such a standard hardware configuration could be so difficult to make the boot loader work. Documentation on this subject is voluminous but very shabby. I have searched and searched and I cannot find any mention of hardware mirrored IDE or SATA drives, nor what dev they would show up as. Very frustrating. Every tutorial I've read on installing grub2 or grub just doesn't work, usually because the dev is not right.

Can anyone shed some light on this bizarre behavior and perhaps offer some advice that will allow me to boot this system without the use of a live CD?

Ubuntu Installation :: RAID 5 (Intel) Not Recognized

Jun 21, 2010

I have a system with: - 1 SSD "boot" drive - 3 HDDs in RAID 5. I created my RAID 5 set in BIOS - P6X58D motherboard/Intel Software RAID - Looks and works fine in Windows 7 (Ultimate) 64-bit. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 using wubi - both Windows 7 and Ubuntu systems are on the SSD THE PROBLEM Ubuntu does not appear to recognize my RAID 5 set - when it loads I see a "/dev/sd_ 10 failed" error (sd_=sda, sdb or sdc) along with "no such file or directory" - I can see my 3 HDDs in 'Disk Utility,' but the space/partition information is incorrect - I reinstalled all packages related to RAID (dmraid, etc.)

Fedora Installation :: Live KDE CD Install : How To Select Boot From /dev/hda4

Feb 28, 2009

I was able to install Fedora 10 from the Live KDE CD, however I can't boot it.

I placed it on /dev/hda4 of an IDE disk, while on /dev/hda1 I have a RedHat 9 Linux, /home is on /dev/hda2 and the swap is on /dev/hda3. I'm not sure if RedHat 9 and Fedora 10 can coexist on the same HD.

There's an option in the Live KDE CD boot install, which allows one to select:

boot from hard disk:

Do you know what to type in in order to direct Fedora to boot from /dev/hda4 (who may be /dev/sda4 as seen by Fedora)?

P.S. For the time being, I want to forget about Grub or LILO and see if I can boot it this way first. I have LILO working, it boots Windows from a separate disk and RedHat 9 from /dev/hda1.

Fedora Installation :: Install Software Crashes Immediately After Select US English On First Screen

Mar 15, 2010

When I attempt to install the OS on my PC, the install software crashes immediately after I select US-English on the first screen. I'm copying the entire error report below. My system is configured as follows: Gigabyte P35-DS3R motherboard with 4G RAM. (FYI, I'm using the 32-bit LiveCD just because I may need a 32-bit OS for some purposes. I know this means I may not be able to use all of my RAM.) There are 3 500G hard drives connected to the computer. /dev/sda and /dev/sdb are RAID-1 mirrors via the on-motherboard ICH9R RAID chip. The logical partitions show up as /dev/dm-1, /dev/dm-2, /dev/dm-3, /dev/dm-4, and /dev/dm-5. When I type `fdisk -l`, I can see sda, sdb, and dm-* all separately. (I can provide the full output of `fdisk` if anybody wants to see it.)

/dev/sdc is a standalone drive without RAID.

I want to install Fedora on /dev/dm-2 with swap on /dev/dm-5. Currently, /dev/dm-1 and /dev/sdc2 each contain a separate installation of WinXP. I suspect the problem is with detecting RAID, thus I have deleted most of the error report that doesn't seem to concern storage detection.

Fedora Hardware :: RAID - Intel Matrix Storage Manager

Mar 28, 2010

I recently bought a new system that has an Intel Matrix Storage Manager "RAID controller" (ICH10R/DO) on it. I'm a bit baffled over what this really is. I see at [URL] that this controller is supported by the Linux dmraid and mdadm commands and supported in the 2.6 kernel version for quite a while. This looks as though it is some sort of convergence of a brain-dead hardware chipset that requires software installed in the OS to manage it. Kind of reminds me of the wimpy Windows modems of the past. How I deployed. I set up two Seagate ST31500541AS disks as a mirrored pair in the hardware controller interface (CTL-I setup after POST).

I installed Fedora 12 in the usual fashion, though was confusing considering I expected a single "RAID device" to be seen by Anaconda. I went ahead and set up the two native /dev/sda and /dev/sdb as a mirrored RAID device on installation (mdadm under the cover). Recently, Palimpsest is insisting that I have a disk problem with "Disk has many bad sectors" error on /dev/sdb. When I run "dmraid -s" it tells me that the meta device is OK and I see no hardware errors in the messages log. I'm not having kernel panics as others seem to have had on RHEL 5.x.

General :: Unable To Access Intel Fake RAID 1 Array In Fedora 14 After Reboot

Jan 6, 2011

1st I am relatively new to linux (but not to *nix). I have 4 disks assembled in the following intel ahci bios fake raid arrays:

2x320GB RAID1 - used for operating systems md126
2x1TB RAID1 - used for data md125

I have used the raid of size 320GB to install my operating system and the second raid I didn't even select during the installation of Fedora 14. After successful partitioning and installation of Fedora, I tried to make the second array available, it was possible to make it visible in linux with mdadm --assembe --scan , after that I created one maximum size partition and 1 maximum size ext4 filesystem in it. Mounted, and used it. After restart - a few I/O errors during boot regarding md125 + inability to mount the filesystem on it and dropped into repair shell. I commented the filesystem in fstab and it booted. To my surprise, the array was marked as "auto read only":


and the partition in it was not available as device special file in /dev:

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Install 10 On Intel G35 Chipset

im having problems finalizing the installation of fedora 10 on a new ASUS P5E-VM that uses Intel G35 chipset.

1. i think fedora did not recognize the video driver since all the installation was in text mode and i cannot use "init 5" to load a UI

2. i tried to find some drivers (if any1 can recommend a rpm that i can download i will apprichiate it very much) but could not transfer them to the fedora since i could not mount any USB disk on key in the linux i tried using: mount -t vfat /mnt/usb (after mkdir /mnt/usb)

3. i tried to burn the driver but then could not access the dvd...

4. no internet connection yet... but thats because i cannot access my network drives that are on the USB key as well...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xf86 Intel Driver Can't Install

Sep 20, 2010

I've installed 10.04 netbook on an old Fujitsu Amilo L1300 laptop, with an Intel i845 graphic card. As I know, it would run just OK with the 2.11.0 drivers, but i have no idea how to install that. I've downloaded the driver, and every package written on the page: [URL] At first I couldn't even ./configure the install, but now the configuration runs smoothly. However I cannot finish the make part, because it gives an error.


sentor@laptop:~/Documents/xf86-video-intel-2.11.0$ make
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/sentor/Documents/xf86-video-intel-2.11.0'

I've been working on it for four days now, and as much as I'd love to continue it, I've run out of time.

Or if there's a way to use the 2.12.0 driver, then could somebody tell me how?

Fedora Installation :: How To Pick RAID 1 During Install

The idea is to make the 500's one RAID 1 set and the 2Tb a RAID 1 set. I think the installer is trying to build the RAID set for the OS but the root is looking like a RAID 0 rather than 1. Is there some way to specify?
