I recently built a prospective file server with these specs:
- MSI B75MA-E33
- 3 x 500GB WD Black HDD
- Highpoint 640L RAID card
And I was hoping to install Ubuntu 12.04 and configure a windows file server with Samba. Unfortunately I'm stuck as I cannot find any drivers to install the RAID card, and therefore see the HDDs and install the OS and software on the system.
I have very little experience with Linux/Ubuntu and this is sort of my trial under fire. I did some googling and found some prospective answers, but none that I fully understood nor any that seemed to work in my situation.
Basically I need two things:
- A simple yes or no answer if what i'm doing is even possible
- If it is, a quick run through of what needs to be done.
I know the Linux community has a reputation for being helpful. Hopefully somebody has an idea of what I need to do to get this working! Thanks in advance!
