I'm not sure weather it's a SuSE issue (Suse 8.2)...
Hardware MSI 845e Master series MB, with PDC202 Raid controller from
We have 2 servers which are completely the same, up to one having
2x40GB Maxtors, and the other one having 2x120GB Baraccudas. I ran the
RAID utility and put the disks in Raid1 array.
I performed theinstallation according to
http://sdb.suse.de/en/sdb/html/tsaupe_promise_8.2.html and the
computer with 2x40Gb disks and everything worked fine. As I was asked
to specify the parition where I wanted Suse to be installed, I got a
RAID1 array as an option (/dev/ataraid/p0xx). Fine. The other computer
sees my 2x120GB disks as 2 IDE disks, i.e., I get /dev/hde and
/dev/hdg as an option?!?!?!?!?! What happened to my Raid1 array?
I then turned to the computer with 2x40 disks, replaced the 2x40 width
2x120GB disks and started the installation and this computer was
having problems, too. So it's no jumper, BIOS setting problem.
Maybe some large disk problem (BIOS), but have found no info on the
net whatsoever. Am getting pretty desperate :(
