I have an Intel box with S2600GZ board. I have tried to install a few Linux distros and non can detect the ESRT2 raid. All distros claim "No disks found". My goal is to install OpenSuse 13.
The only distribution I managed to install is Suse Enteprisee 11 SP2 with the help of the Intel Deployment Assistant CD. If I try the stock Suse Enterprise SP2 ISO downloaded as is from the Suse site, I can't detect either. I have to specifically use the Intel CD first.
I also tried downloading the latest drivers from Intel, but can't seem to make OpenSuse load them either. Also the docs seems to point out that the drivers are LSI MegaRaid which I also tried to load the module manually through expert mode.
So what is the Intel deployment CD doing that the stock ISO images aren't? Where can I get some more info for help to debug this?
I also tried to disable ESRT2 all together in the BIOS but still no go. Unless I did something wrong there.
I also posted here pretty much the same questions: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/494695-Intel-raid-installation-works-on-Suse-Enteprise-11-but-not-Open-Suse-13
