RE: [K12OSN] New installation on an old Server



I think you could boot from a boot manager on an ide drive or usb stick etc
pointing to your raid as system disk. I agree with Steven; booting from those
old raid arrays is sometimes really difficult. I have on old HP server that was
able to boot K12LTSP4, not able with K12LTSP5 and again able with ver6...

Well I was hoping to be able to use the faster speeds of the SCSI
drives, but I guess I can just use them as storage. Thanks for the
advice.

Easy answer: install another boot device.

For whatever reason, you can't boot to the RAID array.  I have had
enough
RAID issues in the past to know that sometimes it just won't work.
Keep
hunting down why, but to make it just work install another boot
device.
Install a cheep IDE drive, bootable USB stick, something, anything
else
that
you can use to boot to the point that Linux can use that RAID array.
