I have a server with all disks connected to a controller LSI 3008 IT (non-RAID mode). Unfortunately disks are not detected during installation of Debian Wheezy. Nevertheless the controller can be detected if I installed mpt3sas driver manually from here

Does anyone know how to load the driver during Debian installation so disks can be detected?


Personally i get the entire scsi directory in /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/ (in example for jessie) on a pc freshly installed and put it in /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/ in initrd.gz of installer (http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2009/07/how-to-view-modify-and-recreate-initrd-img/)

With that, no problem on all recent dell workstations (for us)
