I'm trying to install CentOS 5.7 on an HP Proliant DL380 G5 (with an HP P400 Smart Array RAID controller) and am getting the following error during the text mode installer:
ERROR: pdc: reading /dev/sda[Input/output error] Input/output error during read on /dev/sda
To me, this sounds like either a faulty drive or unsupported hardware. That being said, the server appears to be fine (I'm in the process of running diagnostics) and I see it listed on the RedHat HCL: https://hardware.redhat.com/show.cgi?id=228312
Is there anything else I can be checking?
