Installation Error with SATA drive
Whenever I try to install Mandrake 10.1, I get the following error at the page after the license agreement, after it has detected my controller for the hard disk:
"Error-no valid devices found on which to create new filesystems"
or something along those lines. Now, I have heard that this is something to do with linux's poor support for SATA drives, but nowdays, you'd expect better. So I'm pretty stuck, as I cannot install it.
Anyway, here are my specs:
Dell Dimension 8400 desktop, BIOS revision A03
Intel P4 3.0Ghz processor
1 gig ram
160gb disk, no idea further than that
ATI X800 Pro.
Et cetera et cetera.
Any help in solving this problem would be appreciated.
