Hard disk controller not recognized

Xianwen Chen-3
Dear OpenBSD users,

I am not able to run OpenBSD 6.2 amd64 on a Dell Latitude E6330. The
installation was done by taking out the hard drive and hook it through
a USB reader to another machine.

I boot the hard drive through Legacy Boot menu. The boot process stops with
root device:

It is possible to boot through bsd.rd. However, the hard drive is not
recognized there.

Here is the dmesg from bsd.rd:

Is your controller set in the BIOS to "RAID" mode instead of "AHCI" mode?

I'm guessing that for some reason or the other the controller is set to
'hardware raid' mode (which OpenBSD does not support) instead of a more
useful SATA mode:

See if the BIOS offers a choice of modes for the controller, hopefully
there is a SATA option.

Dear Mike,

From the output of dmesg, I guess so. The BIOS is locked by IT
administrators. Is there some way that I can use OpenBSD while the
controller is set to RAID mode?

Sincerely,

Re: Hard disk controller not recognized

In reply to this post by Xianwen Chen-3
Hi Xianwen,

I guess this is one of "you're-on-your-own" cases, the BIOS being locked by IT I'm even surprised you're allowed to install a different OS on the machine.

For starters I'd speak directly with them and check what are you allowed or not to do with the machine.

Re: Hard disk controller not recognized

In reply to this post by Peter N. M. Hansteen-3
Dear Peter,

Thank you. There is probably such an option in BIOS. Unfortunately I
do not have access to BIOS at the moment, because it is locked by
administrators of my IT department.

Sincerely,
Xianwen

Xianwen,

Obviously the best thing is for IT to release the BIOS control to you,
but if they won't, get a USB SATA disk interface, and try to use that.
Your IT department might have figured out how to interfere with that
too, but that might be a solution.  You'd have to keep that external
disk and its interface with you, but at least you could use OpenBSD.

It is possible to boot through bsd.rd. However, the hard drive is not

Hi Xianwen,

if you try with the USB Boot device...  you can see if you can load it .

then I suggest you get a compact low profiile USB key  so that it
doenst snag on your bag when putting
the laptop back in the case

Hi Xianwen,

if you try with the USB Boot device...  you can see if you can load it .

then I suggest you get a compact low profiile USB key  so that it
