HD detection Promise Ultra 100Tx2
Hello, I am new to Debian, but a long time linux user. I wanted to
install debian on a system with these basic specs:
Tyan Tiger MP w/ AMD Athlon MP 1800+ processors.
Promise Ultra 100 Tx2 controller with 2 HDD's (WD 100GB 7200RPM)
SB PCI 128 audio
Geforce 3 Ti 500 Graphics controller.
I started with 2.2r5 install disks, and they couldn't detect the
Promise controller. I checked the driver disks, and couldn't find the
necessary module. After some looking, I discovered that under your
testing distribution there was a udma100 w/ ext3 floppy installation.
Only one disk of the two are detected. My intention is to make raid
partitions to install on, so it is imperative that both are detected at
FYI, I can verify that the drives get detected by the controllers bios,
and I also installed RH7.2 (not meant as a slight) to this same machine
using software RAID 0 with no problems.
Thanks for all your work, and let me know if I need to provide more info,
or anything else.
