I installed EFW2.5.2 on HP ProLaint DL380 (HP Smart Array 6i), it was working very well. And I was able to upgrade it 3.0.9.

Now I want to upgrade to 3.2.2. And I won't be able to do it with efw-upgrade command.

So, I backed up my settings, and tried to make fresh installation. But I got following error message:

"No usable hard disk could be found.
The installation will be aborted."

I tried to install other Linux (Ubuntu, Suse, Centos) all work fine, and I tried re-install EFW 2.5.2, it works as well. But never work with EFW 3.2.1 and 3.2.2. I think maybe the driver issue, but I don't know how to fix it.

Anybody can give me some help?

Hi, when booting from the ISO, stop the automatic boot and then you should see "boot:" here enter the following string:

/vmlinuz initrd=/initrd LABEL=boot root=/dev/ram0 console=tty0 hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 hpsa.hpsa_simple_mode=1

unfortunately, tried to enter the hpsa option, even cciss option. None of them works.

I'll keep trying to find the right driver for Smart Array 6i installation on new Linux kernal.
