I am trying this and that to attempt a RAID1 array with a fresh install of FreePBX Distro (latest stable version, 32bit).
I have a RocketRaid 133 from Highpoint with 2 PATA drives both completely cleared of all partitions and data. I am able to create the array using the RR bios. There is nothing to mirror so I just created the array.
I popped in the Distro DVD and during the initial boot, it asks of 3 options: Press Enter (for auto detect of raid array), Freepbx-noraid for simple partitions and Freepbx-advance for advance.
It doesn’t matter which one I pick. After the white text fills the screen, eventually I get:
EIP:  pci_bus_clock_list+0xd/0x17 SS:ESP 0068:c18a2ee4
<0> Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception
As this is a clean install, I am unsure where to turn.
Any help would be great. Thanks!
EDIT: I should mention that earlier, with my current 1 hard drive build and a stable FreePBX Disto system working, I tried to duplicate the drive in a RAID1 array and mirror the drive (which worked great) but during a boot, I got the same error.
I know the hardware works. I’ve used it since.
