Problem with Intel Software Raid

Post by jkaivo » 10 Mar 2010, 15:22

I'm trying to recover some files from a three disk Intel Software Raid, but whenever I run dmraid I get an error of:

ERROR: device-mapper target type "raid45" not in kernel

Does anyone have any experience working around this error?

This module should be loaded automatically at boot time...
Can you do a "modprobe raid456" to see if it works ?
You can also try SystemRescueCd-1.5.0 beta which has a new initramfs, it can improve detection of hardware.
