Re: To install over ich6r raid
When you come to the step to partition your hd I'm gessing you something
like 'no availible drives' and the screen goes red in the backgound, right?
The new ICH6 chip is very new but it is supported by the ata_piix module
through libata. So just modprobe ata_piix to enable d-i to detect your
HD. But make sure your installing in a kernel 2.6.x install cause its
the only one that has the libata and ata_piix with it.
In simple steps this is what you should do:
When booting from the install cd you enter either 'linux26' or
'expert26'. Then go through the install until you fail to detect your
hard drive and then press ALT+F2 to switch the other console and press
enter to activate it. Here you just type 'modprobe ata_piix' and it
should produce no messages and then leave you at another prompt. After
this you just switch back to d-i with ALT+F1 and redo the 'Detect
hardware' step which should be one step above the partition hard drive
step. And then you should be able to detect your hard drive during the
rest of the installation. =)
All this I wrote down from memmory so if all the terms and labels are
correct I blame my brain. Oh and by the way, I'm sorry if I seem to
treat you like a newbie by writing this detailed how-to but its not your
fault, I just felt like writing it so no offense. ;)
