my company have bought a few (brand new from HP) Intel based 1U Proliant
I keep having a problem with the RAID array when installing Debian 'etch':
I first build the RAID 1 array (2x250GB sata disks) (either using the
disk utility provided by HP or by enabling it in the BIOS).
When i reboot the machine i can see my new array on the console screen.
Then i reboot again and start the Debian NetInstall but when it prompts
me about partitioning my disks i can see that BOTH disks are there...
I would expect to see only one!
As anyone had the same issue and managed to solve it?
I found a few posts about similar issues and a few suggestions about
patching the kernel etc...but i have never really played with kernels
before so would like to avoid going down that line if another solution
