Mandrake 10.1 Installation Freezeup
Ok i have a homebuilt computer(specs listed below) that i'm trying to install linux on. I previously had 10.0 Official on it but it does not support my sata drive. So i downloaded 10.1 and installed it on my computer. Mandrake 10.1 proceeded to freeze over the next couple reboots since it was installed on my sata drive. I decided to try and reinstall and now when it is loading the sata/scsi/raid drivers it freezes. I then decided to unplug my sata drive and linux proceeded with the installation with no problem. Finally i plugged it back in and ran windows windows was going to install on it with no problem thus conferring that the drive is in fact fine. I was curious if there was some parameters that i could add to fix this.
if you can help me i would be extremely happy, I do not want to return to windows.
