Hi, I'm trying a fresh install on a x86_64 (Supermicro X7dbe, 2xIntel
Xeon X5450, 8 GB, 3WARE 9650SE-8LPML, 3 disks in RAID 5).
The format takes quite long (2,7 TB), that seems to be normal, but then
the first boot will not take place, instead the system loops. Any hints?
The message follows:
Regards
