I bought this server for work (a cheapy): http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7220575&CatId=2683 to upgrade our WAMP server to a newer LAMP server.
It appears the RAID-5 is actually a FakeRAID which is very unfortunate for me.
Anyway, I'm trying to install a 64-bit 10.04.2 Lucid server from a USB-key and the partitioner seems to hang at 43%. Before the partitioner loads it asks me to "Activate Serial ATA Devices" and I've tried both "yes" and "no".
I did a sha1sum on the ISO and it says it's "OK". I was also able to hit Ctrl+Alt+F2 and run
tail -n 20 /var/log/partman and saw no error.
What else can I do to debug this problem?
