I have tried to enter setup to disable raid but I cannot enter the setup menu. 
Does anyone know if there is a way to get past this on POST or anyway to reflash 
the RAID card.

In fact any ideas are welcome at the moment.

Subject: Perc 4e/Di driver update - but now it hangs on reboot

I just updated the driver for the Raid controller as OSM was telling me the 
driver was out of date. I am running Oracle Enterprise Linux on a Dell Poweredge 

2850 and everything seemed fine up to this point.

I cannot access the raid controller using <CTRL>M or any other function

I am guessing to make myself a bootable Linux disk with the RAID_Driver.bin on 
it and trying again that way.

Any tips or clues of how to get myself out of this?
