PowerEdge R640 - OS Installation failure -

Hello folks,

I'm having an issue regarding the installation of CentOS 6.6
the error it displays 'No usable disks have been found',
I've tried without raid but it also fails. I haven't found any solution online so far for this problem.
Please avoid suggesting to install other OS(version).
is there any firmware update that would fits my case?
Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.

Regards,

Tal

Hi,

Only 6.9 and 6.10 are validated. Page 13 https://linux.dell.com/files/supportmatrix/RHEL_Support_Matrix.pdf

The problem is that the hardware has outpaced the software, so the driver likely isn't compatible. You'd need to load an updated driver into Cent to make it happen.

That may help, its for RHEL6

thing is, it prevents me from making a fresh installed CentOS 6.6

can't I make a firmware downgrade\upgrade to be able to handle the kernel ?

Install 6.6 on a VM inside of a validated OS.
