Installation problem-dvd drive not found!
I have a SATA hard drive and a DVD writer on a an IDE cable on an P5B Intel P965 chipset. The sata hard disk is set as "master" based on sata slots (first or second slot are used to set the hard disk as master). The dvd is set as slave on the ide channel. Now, I have tried several linux distros and I get the same error that no media found. In all distros that i tried the dvd drive is not found and therefore not mounted so the installation is stopped at the very beginning and usually I get dropped into a shell. Please I need your help guys! what am i doing wrong here? any suggestion would be helpful, I am kind of desperate :(
Note: I tried to install windows xp and unfortunately it worked just fine :???:
help, don't leave me with windows :rolleyes:
