    Installing Fedora C12 in Asus P5GC-MX1333 with Sata HD


    Hi there,

    I'm trying to install Linux Fedora Core 12 in a PC with a P5GC-MX1333 motherboard from Asus and a Sata hard drive, however, when boot to the installation menu, after chosing the language and keyboard, I get a message that there seams to be no hard drive in the PC. The hard drive is detected in the post during startup, and is also detected by a Windows XP Installation CD. Can any one help me?

    Thanks.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Does any other Linux distro detect SATA Hard disk in your machine?
    Try PartedMagic LiveCD/USB and check if it detects Hard disk.

    Or

    Pass ide=nodma option to kernel during at startup during installation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    No. I haven't. I only have Fedora.

    Controlers

    Fedora Core 12 doesn't recognize some of the controlers out there, and I have the same problem with Ubuntu installing in an Ultra 320 Controller. (Some of The Sata Controlers are recognized as storage controlers, like the older SCSIs )
    I am using Kubuntu for SCSIs that I have. Try to use Kubuntu.

    I've discover....it's the hard disk definition in the BIOS....must not have LBA active.
    LBA must be set to Disable.
