Hi Chris I am also trying to get systemimager to work with a 3Ware controller (and shortly with a SATA drive) I have been through the manual but cant find what you are referring to (I am somewhat new at this kernel stuff). Any pointer you could give me would be most well received. Even to pointing me to the right piece of documentation. TIA Malcolm In the above message you mention The systemimager 3.x autoinstall kernel that comes down via the PXE netboot did not see the drives so it bombed out with lots of errors. Teaching systemimager to download and 'insmod' the 3ware driver was pretty darn easy.
