Can't even get started... initial pata errors... HELP!
ASUS m/b (p5ld2) w/ intel 3.2 cedar mill
160 sata wd drive
Also 160gb IDE & HP DVD writer (IDE)
256mb nvidea, and other exciting things.
BIOS seems to see all devices, have sata settings set to [standard ide] in enhanced mode. (have tried other ways), but that should be correct.
F7DVD boot, I get the nice balloons, then install. After the initial start, the blue screen pops with;
LOADING SCSI DRIVER
Loading pata_it821x driver
and just hangs there.
Is there anything I can do at the boot level to disable, or change to make this boot correctly as this is a sata device, not even sure why pata is even showing!!

this will not load any modules and i guess it starts in text mode
but you can neatly troubleshoot and select the drivers u want
All auto-detection will be disabled (including network drivers) and you must load the drivers of modules manually.
Check if any setting are there in BIOS setting for the motherboard. Something like Enhanced" for PATA/SATA device (I think) and toggle them. After making this change Installtion process may able to detect drivers and install it sucessfully.
*Check which SATA controller you're using.
*Get a Linux driver disk(floppy) from their website(if they have one).
*Place the floppy in its drive but boot from the CD(if your bios doesn't support this, just insert the floppy after it found the CD)
*Next boot like this:
Do update us..Regards,
