Unfortunately x64 bit version cannot find this controller. When I use i686 version of Owl I can install system without any problem. Can you help me with this task? > Full information about controller is: 08:00.0 SCSI storage controller : LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1064ET PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS [1000:0056] (rev 04) This is puzzling. On x86_64, we compile CONFIG_FUSION_FC as a module, but this shouldn't be relevant because your controller appears to be SAS and not Fibre Channel. Yet can you try "modprobe mptfc" just in case and let us know if it makes a difference? Another guess is that your controller somehow presents itself differently when initialized by the x86_64 kernel. Is the above lspci info from an i686 or a x86_64 boot? 0x0056 is indeed supported in the kernel. For similar controllers that are unsupported (unlike yours), the recipe is like this: mount /sys echo '0x1000 0x0059' > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/mptsas/new_id & which gets the controller recognized while CD-booted, and a patch like: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=325805 http://bugs.gentoo.org/attachment.cgi?id=236721 to keep it recognized by the new kernel (to be installed). This worked for me for a particular MPT Fusion controller type, but like I said it should probably not be needed for yours. So let's figure out what's going on in your case. Alexander
