A little backstory first. I have focused on PC hardware for 10+ years. I decided to pull the trigger and move my media from just being stored on a bunch of drives in my main PC to a more dedicated box. I bought this server because it met my needs 12 3.5” bays, dual socket, room for expansion and the price was right. The main function of it will be as a NAS and a virtualization server.
Now my issue I have ran into. I am trying to figure out the best solution for my boot. I am using a SATA SSD for the boot drive i was able to easily install my OS but I can not got it to boot properly. The current configuration is the boot drive is plugged into an HP220(LSI-9205 IT MODE.) in the hba configuration screen I set the ssd as bootable and in the bios set the card as the first boot priority. What happens is it will crash into the grub menu with the error that the kernel need to load first. Any suggestions would help.
