Airwave Install - no usable disks found

Trying to install Airwave onto a new Dell server and keep getting the error 'no usable disk found'

Could be mistaken be it looks like it can't recognise the Raid controller (perc h730) and/or doesn't have the drivers.

Any advice how to proceed?

Did you provision the disks in the RAID configuration pre-boot?

Re: Airwave Install - no usable disks found

You may need to interrupt the installer to allow for 3rd party drivers to account for that particular RAID card.  Try opening a support case if that doesn't work.

How do I do that and install these drivers?

Re: Airwave Install - no usable disks found

At the ISO install prompt, you can try:

# install dd

This should work, but I've not had to run through the 3rd party install in a long time.

It should prompt for 3rd party driver install before going into the regular OS install.

couldn't manage to get that to work.  TAC advised to put a base Centos 6.5 install on and follow these instructions.

All done and looking good.

Re: Airwave Install - no usable disks found

did you boot from the life cycle controller first then install airwave after?
