I just wonder if it is known case that right after installation of RHEL
5.3 x64 on FTS RX300 S6 the grub is even not loading.
What I've done is standard RAID (mirroring) configuration in the LSI
menu (CTRL + C during post)
hd1 + hd3 = mirror1
hd2 + hd4 = mirror2
I've booter from DVD installed like via gui (no lvm) everything on sda:
/boot ext3 200MB (sda1)
/ ext3 40960MB (sda2)
Swap ext3 20480MB
/opt ext3<Free space>
/var ext3 10240MB
/usr ext3 10240MB
/home ext3 20480MB
/tmp ext3 20480MB
Then after reboot when the server wants to boot the screen becomes
black, and there is no grub.
I've booted to rescue mode with rhel DVD, performed grub installation
"setup (hd0) (hd0,0)" the result was successful but still after reboot
the screen is black
Do you have any hints about this?
Do you think that using dd to load stage1 directly into /dev/sda could
be good idea?

Have you check on your controller if there is any option to select which
virtual disk should be a boot device?
Some controllers offer that option.
> From your post it looks you setup 2xRAID1 VDs. If non of them or the
wrong one has the boot flag set the system won't boot from this VD.
I do not know this platform, but have you got a BIOS boot menu
available? If yes, have you tried to select it? Are you sure you are
booting from the correct device?

The LSI controller has very limited configuration options. Like create
RAID and nothing more. I haven't see any option for boot flag in the LSI
In the BIOS the created VD's are visible. I've even tried to manually
force in boot-menu to boot from the VD but no luck.
I think it is some kind of bug, Ive found some web pages during
googling. Make a query "grub installation problem on LSI mirror". But
make it on google.com on .pl the results are different.
Unfortunately nothing helpful for me.
One more thing putting stage1 by dd on the drive is not healthy, I've
expected that it will erase partitions info but just wanted to try
