I'm afraid that I don't have much insight to offer here.
You could try going to the alt-f2 console and then running lsmod to
determine whether or not the driver has loaded successfully. If it has it
should have a use count greater than 0.
Others frequently recommend ensuring that the firmware on the RAID
controller is up to date. For the latest firmware try:
You could also try working with the megaraid driver available at:
Hope this helps.

I found a megaraid_2002 driver which was on a boot diskette and I merged
that into my kickstart. I see it load during the kickstart, but I still
get "An error has occurred - no valid devices were found on which to
create new filesystems."
I have a PERC 4 controller in the 2600. The last error in the alt-f4
md: raid5 personality registered as nr4
Journalled block device driver loaded
hda: packet command error: status 0x51 (Drive Ready SeekComplete Error)
hda: packet command error=0x54
ATAPI device hda
Error Illegal request -- Sense key 0x05
Invalid field in command packet -- (asc=0x24, ascq=0x00)
The failed Start/Stop Unit packet command was:
"1b 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00"
cdrom: open failed
Any clues? A better driver?
