Anaconda crash during install

I am trying to install Rockstor 3.9.1 (the latest available ISO) on a Dell R720xd server to replace my existing Rockstor file server, and I have a RAID1 virtual disk created for a boot drive. However, every time I select the disk for an installation target, Anaconda crashes:

Is this an issue in hardware or is it that Rockstor doesn’t know what to do with the disk?

Any help is appreciated.

@jcdick1 Hello again.

I think you are best doing general search for this issue as, given it’s anaconda origin, doesn’t look like it’s actually Rockstor related. You might want to include ‘kickstart’ in the search as that is the default method used during a Rockstor install. The installer in Rockstor only really enables a kickstart config and does a light re-brand. So it’s essentially the same as a generic CentOS (old now though) installer. Only once you have rebooted are on the first boot that the Rockstor code comes into play. Prior to that it’s better to resort to CentOS forums on kickstart issues or those concerning your particular hardware / config.

Hope that helps.
