    Linux 9 Installation on SATA Hdd.

    Locked

    by san_tch ·

    Dear Tech Friend
    My pc configuration is as follows…..

    Processor : Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 Mhz)
    Mother Board : Intel G915GAG
    Ram: 512mb DDR
    HDD: 80 GB SATA – Samsung(DH-080HJ)
    O/S: Win2k Professional on drive C(40GB)
    : Win2k Adv. Server on drive D (40GB)

    I have tried to load Linux 9 on unpartitioned drive. But installation aborted showing a Warning – “No Hard drive have been found. You probably need to manually choose device driver for the installation to succeed”.

    It may needs SATA HDD driver.
    Plz send some solution.

    With Regards
    Santanu

      Redhat 9 is now over two years old, then there
      were no sata drives, therefore it has no support
      for them.

      Please look into Whitebox Linux or Centos Linux
      (they are RHEL 3 derivatives (basiaclly ARE
      redhat with different logo’s and without the
      mandatory support contract.)

      Those are a bit more modern OS’s.

      HIH

      Kind regards,

      Unless you are good at compiling your own drivers, you are probably out of luck. I recently went through the same issue but with the latest versions of Fedora (Core 3 at the time) as well as Mandrake (came with a machine that supported SATA drives but the supplied Mandrake did not) – even though SATA was supposed to be supported, only a couple of controllers were supported, not the one on my mother board.

      This is one of the things holding back Linux from greater acceptance.

      go to the manufacturer website and download the SATA linux drivers for your harddrive.
      during the linux installation, you will be asked whether you want to install additional drivers.
      You can then install the drivers you have downloaded and continue with the installation using the SATA HD.

      You need to get the vendor drivers for Linux from their website. You also need to get a more modern distro. Red Hat 9 is depricated and no longer supported. You can choose the Fedora tree or go with a different distro (Gentoo is harder to install, but more SATA friendly)

      Fedora Core 4 – http://fedora.redhat.com
      Gentoo – http://www.gentoo.org

      Check out to see if your SATA is supported:

      Hi Santanu
      When you boot linux from cd, type the following correctly. ” linux : pci=nommconf acpi=off all-generic-ide “. I think it works on
      most redhat based linux such as fedora also.

      Please inform me if it works. My email is wellrenju@gmail.com.
      Be sure to type correctly

      Good luck

      Hello Santanu,

      As HDD you specified is SATA so linux doesn’t support the SATA HDD unless it finds it drivers. First search for Linux supprortive Driver for SATA HDD, then start your installation.
