Trying to install Ubuntu Server 10.04.02 on a Dell PowerEdge 2600, and I get stuck in a reboot cycle after installation (which prevents using the server). No obvious reasons for it. Anyone run into this before?

We need more information to be of any help. For instance: do you get past grub? Depending on the answer you either get a solution on repairing/reinstalling grub or other questions. Please elaborate on what's happening. – Rinzwind May 22 '11 at 6:09

Figured it out. The hardware RAID card I have in the system doesn't have pre-loaded drivers for the card, i'll have to load them manually.

It'll be tricky, but I'll sort it out eventually.
