    Thumbs down How to install Red Hat Enterprise 4 on SATA drive


    My Laptop has a SATA drive and when i try to install Red Hat Enterprise 4, i get an error "hard drive is not found"

    I have created 3 different partitions on the laptop and i have installed windows on C, kept drive D for personal data and wanted to install Redhat on drive E but it can't see the hard disk.
    What should i do to be able to install?

    Please help!!

    Regards,
    Eric.

    Try passing all-generic-ide option.
    Code:
    linux all-generic-ide
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
