Problem when installing CentOS 4.1 on SuperMicro 6014P-8R

    I have a SuperMicro 6014P-8R server with two scsi harddisks and an extra Adaptec 2010S scsi raid card.

    Now, installing CentOS 3.4 gives no problems. The installer loads automatically the dpt_i2o scsi driver and the hard drivers are recognized.

    BUT when I try to install a newer version of CentOS, such as 4.0 or 4.1, then the installer prompts with the following question:

    "No hard drives were found. Do you wish to load a driver from the list ?"

    Then I say yes and I choose for the i2o block driver. The installer loads this driver and I am able to see and partition the hard drives.

    The install (type=server) runs fine without any further trouble. BUT when I reboot the server after the install, this happens:

    Loading Linux........................................
    Uncompressing Linux...

    Invalid compressed format (err=2)

    -- system halted

    Has anyone an idea what could be the problem ? How should I install CentOS 4.1 on my SuperMicro server ?

    Kinds regards

    You should seek help at the centos forums as this isn't cPanel related.
