Won't select sda on Linux host kickstart

Postby rjcurro » 27. Feb 2020, 17:52

I'm trying to automate my Linux install on a VirtualBox,when I try it on our virtual machine the kickstart fails to select the "sda" drive and I have to manually set it up along with the partitions. Looking though the Linux kernel it definitely detects the sda drive it's just not selecting it during our kickstart install which doesn't happen on a regular machine. I have the drive set up as a VDI on a SATA Controller, and have tried both a fixed sized and dynamic size disk. Is there anything I need to do in VirtualBox so my kickstart both detects and selects the drive so I don't have to manually set up partitions?

Using RHEL7.4
VirtualBox 6.1

thanks,
Robert

What's the output of
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
fdisk -l
prior to running any kickstart commands?
