Question Fedora 12 Installed on SATA drive


Hello,I have been running Fedora 11, installed on a SATA drive. I obtained a second new SATA drive, removed the old Fedora 11 drive and installed Fedora 12 using all defaults. It boots and works fine on the new drive. I plugged the old SATA drive into a 3rd SATA port and rebooted (my DVD is on the second SATA port). Now Fedora 12 hangs after the progress bars and Fedora 12 text goes away (at screen bottom). Boots fine without the 3rd (old) SATA, but hangs when plugged in. I can also replace the new Fedora 12 drive with the old and Fedora 11 boots up fine as well. Can anyone suggest a reason/solution for this problem?

System:
SuperMicro X7DA8 MB with twin Xeons
2 IDE connections
6 SATA ports
2 SATA drives and a DVD
Thanks for any help!
Steve

Your BIOS setting for the 3rd SATA port is ok? How about unplugging your DVD & connect your FC11 on this 2nd port. Same problem?

I tried the DVD on 3 with FC12 on one, FC11 on two. Same problem. Bios settings check out OK? You think maybe a BIOS update (available) would help?
Thanks
Steve

I personally finds it harmless if there is a BIOS update available. (The mainboard makers would normally list what the latest version corrected and/or enhanced). Let us know if it works out fine after your update?
