I'm trying to install CentOS 5.8 on the following system with the following specs:
- HP DL360e Gen8
- HP Dynamic Smart Array 8320i RAID Controller
- ILO 4 v1.05
I'm connecting the ISO to the server via a virtual disk using HP ILO4.
It initially seems to boot fine… I see lines like:
Loading vmlinuz........ Loading initrd.img...................
Followed by various bios messages….
Eventually I see the anaconda installer start and get the following message:
Loading SCSI driver Loading usb-storage driver...
Loading SCSI driver Loading ahci driver...
Then finally, I get:
CD Not Found CentOS CD was not found in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the CentOS CD and press OK to retry.
If I select OK, it gives me the same error.
From what I can dig up, ILO essentially mounts the CD as a USB CD Drive to the system. I'm wondering if for some reason a driver for facilitating this isn't available (although I'm still confused on how I could get this far).
On a side note, I don’t see this specific system (HP DL360e Gen8) listed on the RedHat hardware compatibility list (https://hardware.redhat.com/list.cgi?product=Red+Hat+Hardware+Certification&quicksearch=DL360) There are a lot of DL360s but not this specific model… I wonder if the hardware is different enough to not support it? That being said, I do see RHEL 5.7 listed here: http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/os/certification.html?var1=DL360e%20Gen8 so perhaps it should work fine?
