24.2. Trouble During the Installation
24.2.1. The "
No devices found to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux" Error Message
If you receive an error message stating
No devices found to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux, then there may be an issue with your DASD devices. If you encounter this error, add the
DASD=<disks>parameter to your parameter file or CMS configuration file (where disks is the DASD range reserved for installation) and start the install again.
Additionally, make sure you format the DASDs using the
dasdfmtcommand within a Linux root shell, instead of formatting the DASDs using CMS. Anaconda automatically detects any DASD devices that are not yet formatted and asks you whether to format the devices.
