No form of linux sees my SATA hard drive
Hey all, I've been looking for a solution to this problem for two hours, but my google-fu has failed me.
I've tried to install a couple linuxs (linucies?) on my work computer over the past couple of months, but none of them can see my hard drive!
Red Hat 9 (did not detect hard drive)
Ubuntu Dapper Drake 6.06 (Hangs when partitioner should show up)
Knoppix 4.0 (boots, but thinks the CD-ROM drive is /dev/hda)
My problem is distinct from this insofar as the hard drive is consistantly not detected. It's also distinct from this thread because AFAIK Ubuntu 6.06 uses the 2.6 kernal, so SATA support should be there, right? Most other threads I've found deal with either external USB hard drives or partitioning problems, neither of which are the issue here. (My PartitionMagic 6 disks saw and partitioned my hard drive just fine, so that's done already.)
So, how can I get linux to detect the hard drive? My end goal is to have this dual-booting with WinXP, which works just fine already.
Hard Drive: 80Gb SATA Seagate Barracuda (ST3808110AS)
Motherboard: ASUS P5VDC-MX
