Hi,

I am trying to clone my running ZeroShell to a VMware machine.

It's for testing prupose: I have somewhat modified ZeroShell and I want to check the upgrade path before I does that on the production machine.

So I cannot use the ready made VMware distribution, I really need to work it out from my own version of ZeroShell. Modifications are really minimal, but would disturb greatly my production environment if they disappeared. One of the modification was to add mpt drivers for Dell RAID.

I am stuck to the probing USB and SATA nine times before kernel panic. So I guess this means a driver is missing.

My VMware disk is seen as SCSI (/dev/sda).

What driver(s) should be added to get ZeroShell to work?

Best regards,

Olivier

The SCSI controller on the virtual machine should be defined as LSI Logic SAS and not as the default LSI Logic Parallel.
