View Full Version : Core 5: omission of mptscsih driver

I wanted to install Core 5 the other day on a spare computer, which uses a set of fibre channel drives attached to an LSI HBA.

To my surprise however Core 5 didn't detect anything, no HDs. Then i realised it wasn't loading the mptscsih driver. So i thought i'd download the floppy disk images from the LSI Logic website. The install program gives one the option to load ddrivers using the "linux dd" option. However when i tried that i gave me the "failed to mount floppy" error.

So in short that i svery frustrating, especially since Core 4 loads the driver without problems & runs just fine on my fibre channel HDs.

Does anyone have any suggestions how to get this working with Core 5 ?
