Install Fails - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 on Dell Dimension 8400
I have a very similar Dell system to you. It is less than 1 month old and I bought a copy of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 on CD ROM from Red Hat and I am receiving the same message "Unable to recognize HD” I am in the process of learning how to get the SATA Hard Drive recognized. I have no solution yet but I have been suggest to do two things: 1) recompile your kernel and 2) change system BIOS to combination rather than SATA Raid. I have not tried either yet because I am looking for more specifics first. If you choose #2 you have to reinstall Windows…I do not know if RHEL 3 will install even if I make the change.
Let me know if you find anything, I will do the same.
